: The Impresarios

This week: Sir Bernard Delfont Part 1
Michael Craig continues the stories of the men who create the world of entertainment.
SIR BERNARD DELFONT Says: An impresario is one who promotes, or is the catalyst in presenting something to the public. He gathers all the elements together to give the public a form of entertainment, whether it be cultural concerts or a world championship boxing match.
OLGA WINOGRADSKY says about Sir Bernard Delfont : I said ' I think you should do something on your own - some business - open a little office and try and do what you can.' I said 'Look, take this pound, go in the West End and get a room - one room, there's always a phone and a table - phone up and ask for a typewriter on weekly payments and try and begin, and you'll see that the God will be good to you and he'll help you, because you've been so good to me all the time.' That's how he began. with Sidney Burns. Keith Devon Rita Freeman. Marie Harris Mollie Maureen. Esta Nossell Elsie Waters and Doris Waters Research BILL SULLIVAN Written by FRANK SALTER

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
