: Broadway Musicals: How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying

starring Robert Morse
Michele Lee , Rudy Vallee
The accent is as much on comedy as on music in its sophisticated portrait of a young man's rise to power in big business. Robert Morse gives a memorable performance as the ambitious - but outwardly innocent - J. Pierpont Finch who rises from mail-room clerk to Vice-President in the time it takes to boil an egg. Based on Bob Fosse 's original staging this is a witty and fast-paced version of one of the liveliest shows.
Screenplay by DAVID SWIFT

: Nothing Final

' Death is one of the greatest taboos. It doesn't square with our worship of youth; we're afraid of it, we deny it, we are even ashamed of it But the truth, alter all, is that We are all terminally ill. Once we recognise that, we can enjoy the life we have left.'
So speaks Elisabeth Kubler-Ross , a Swiss-American doctor who specialises ia working with the dying - of all ages. Children, she says, are by far her calmest patients. ' TIleY haven't been indoctrinated with the fears and hang-ups of adults. They are not part of the conspiracy of silence which too often surrounds death.' This film follows Kubler-Ross over several weeks; it observes the philosophy and practice of this one-woman travelling hospice.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
