: The Story of Light Entertainment

2/8. All-Round Entertainers. From the Victorian music halls, with their traditional mix of song, dance and comic skit, came the artiste who could "do it all". Yet. despite an incredible mix of skills and after ruling the world of light entertainment for years, the all-rounder's chief source of employment was to become hosts of variety and quiz shows. So how have the likes of Bruce Forsyth, Michael Barrymore, Cilla Black and Bob Monkhouse adapted their talents to keep their positions on the slippery showbiz ladder? Michael Grade, Clive James, Greg Dyke and Nigel Lythgoe are among those discussing these jacks of all trades. Stephen Fry narrates.

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.
