: There's No Place Like Home - a Judy Garland Story

2/3. Eschewing the usual warts 'n' all / kiss 'n' tell approach to documenting the mercurial and ultimately sad life of entertainer Judy Garland, Brian Sibley reassesses the star in terms of where she felt most "at home" - on stage, on television and on the silver screen. Interviewees include lyricist Jerry Herman and playwright Edward Albee, with special contributions from Liza Minnelli and Margaret O'Brien. Just Judy
A look at Judy's television career, most notably her ground-breaking 1963-64 CBS series, which wowed the critics but eluded the public, who were watching NBC's hugely popular western drama Bonanza.

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.
