The man they called Mr Show manship. Not only one of Elizabeth Taylor 's husbands, but probably the most dynamic producer since Barnum.
MIKE TODD JR: ' 'Dad operated best during periods of panic and confusion - press agent claimed that he deliberately manufactured confusion and chaos so that everybody would be totally paralysed with fear, and he would have the complete autonomy that only fear can inculcate in the others, and then he could take complete control of a project.' and also the voices of: HAROLD ADAMSON , MILTON BERLE JOHNNY GREEN, JULE STYNE Research by BILL SULLIVAN Written by DICK VOSBURGH

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.
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.
