2/6. Jazz vocalist Clare Teal presents a new series of themed programmes, this time devoted to the various creative forces behind the making of a record. She continues her survey with Hollywood's most celebrated ghost vocalist, Marni Nixon , whose soaring soprano came to the rescue of otherwise musically barren stars like Natalie Wood (in West Side Story), Deborah Kerr (The King and I and An Affair to
Remember) and, most famously, Audrey Hepburn (My Fair Lady).
Sex and the City redhead Cynthia Nixon reads an abridged verson of Anita Loos 's satirical 1925 novel. 6/8. Lorelei and Dorothy leave Munich for Vienna in search of futher male conquests. Abridged by Neville Teller
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.
