: To Be the Best: An Actor's Life for Me: The Radio 2 Arts Programme

In the second of three occasional programmes looking into the lives, hopes and dreams of performers, Angela Rippon explores the world of the actor. Is it the dream of an Oscar and international stardom that drives today's aspiring actors? Or is it simply a love of performing, a compulsion to bring a character to life? And what of the reality? Months spent 'resting', working in bars and cafes, waiting for the big break.
For some, the rewards are great, while others, perhaps, should have heeded Noel Coward 's advice: "...Don't put your daughter on the stage, Mrs Worthington".

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.
