: The Man Who Was Bilko - the Phil Silvers Story

Michael Palin pays tribute to comedy giant Phil Silvers, whose sizeable contributions to burlesque, vaudeville, Broadway and Hollywood are eclipsed only by the TV classic The Phil Silvers Show (aka You'll Never Get Rich or Bilko). The frantically funny US army programme, which enjoyed respectable-only audience ratings but which won numerous Emmy awards during its four-year mid-50s run, is often cited as television's quintessential situation comedy. Contributors include Alan Ayckbourn, Betsy Blair, Angela Douglas, Herbert Kretzmer and Thelma Ruby, plus archive interviews with Phil Silvers, Gene Kelly, Judy Garland, Bing Crosby and many others. Silvers died in November 1985, aged 74.
Producer Roy Oakshott

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.
