Michael (raig presents the first of a 26-part series on the outstanding producers of entertainment in the USA this century.
This week: Ziegfeld (part 1)
The name that personifies an era, and has become a point of reference for every producer and impresario who ever pulled the rug from under his backers.
LARRY ADLER : ' He had a great eye for talent and he knew when a man was a good comedian, but he never got the jokes.'
BROOKS Atkinson : 'In a hotel he would send telegrams to people on the floor beneath him.'
RANDOLPH CARTER : 'He had a great deal of trouble with his composers because he frequently refused to pay them proper royalties.'
ARTHUR SCHWARTZ : ' An extravagant man, a wonderful producer of shows who didn't know how to restrain himself ... he died broke.'
KEENAN WYNN : ' There's a story that Ziegfeld was having an affair with a girl in the show, and at this dress rehearsal in the theatre she yelled " Ziggy, I can't wear this dress - it's impossible, it's a ridiculous costume, Ziggy." And he said, "Mr Ziegfeld in the theatre, dear, Ziggy in' bed ".' Research BILL SULLIVAN

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.
