: 'CHAMPAGNE CHARLIE' Arthur Hayward

Here is a talk about the original one and only Champagne Charlie, on whose wild exploits the popular song was based. Champagne Charlie, or, to use his real name, the Marquis of Hastings, roistered round London in the 1860's, a rip of the days when champagne literally flowed for young bloods in music-hall and gaming-room. Prodigally generous, wildly irresponsible, Champagne Charlie for some five years led the young men of the town in and out of trouble. His practical jokes were on the grand scale, his gambling prodigious (he wagered £120,000 on a Derby loser), and his waistcoats, buttonholes, and canes were the talk of the town. He died, a victim of his own high spirits, at the age of twenty-six, penniless, but, after his own strange fashion, undoubtedly immortal.

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.
