Nigel plans an Easter surprise for Clare, and Sarah decides it's time to return home and face the music.

: Before They Were Famous

Angus Deayton provides a fascinating selection of cringe-making clips of famous celebrities, filmed long before they were famous. Deayton does not forget himself and includes his famous cereal advertisement, along with Dustin Hoffman praising a car and a 14-year-old Naomi Campbell prancing about on The Keith Harris Show.
See today's choices.

Before They Were Famous 9.00pm BBC1
Resplendent in orange velvet, Angus Deayton hosts a show whose title rather blows the mystery of its contents. Is there anything more gratifying than seeing the feted and the famous grovelling about like the rest of us while waiting in the wings of superstardom? Those familiar with the Deayton/Danny Baker sense of humour will know what to expect from their script.
The researchers have unearthed an astonishing array of stars in unlikely places: Arnold Schwarzenegger on Magpie, Jeremy Irons on Play Away, Anna Ford singing Dylan's Masters of War in her best Joan Baez-quaver, the list is endless and endlessly hilarious. It may be buttock-clenchingly embarrassing for the stars, but it's so funny it should carry a health warning.
See who you recognise in our early line-up on page 25.


Presenter: Angus Deayton
Director: Stuart McDonald
Producer: Caroline Wright

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
