: The Impresarios

Michael Craig continues the stories of the men who create the world of entertainment. Harold Fielding
3: The individual Impresario with the voices of Harold Fielding: I don'think one would be a good impresario if one had all successes, you'd get too cocky, you'd get to believe that you couldn'go wrong - you must be pulled up by these flops. Ray Cook : He's like a dynamo, I mean he's like a whirlwind, a white tornado - he's incredible, he races round that office - he laughs, he shrieks, he jumps up and down. When he's angry he stamps his feet, and bashes the table and says, No, no, no, I will not have it,' and then he laughs and says, ' Hat'e a drink.' Joe Brown about' Charlie Girl ': I never thought we'd get to the West End at all, but we did. It was a good effort all round, but I think it was mainly down to Fielding's guts that brought the thing off. and Ian Bevan , Joan Preston Research BILL SULLIVAN Written by FRANK SALTER Producer DAVID RAYVERN ALLEN

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.
