5/6. Desmond Carrington profiles historically significant entertainers from the worlds of cabaret, revue and theatre. He continues with cardigan-wearing, rocking-chair-based Irish crooner Val Doonican.
A self-taught musician and arranger, and radio, TV and cabaret favourite, Doonican hit the big time with cosy songs like his 1964 debut hit Walk Tall, The Special Years, What Would I Be and If the Whole World
Stopped Lovin'. Aged 79 and still performing, he chats informally about his career.
Alex Kingston reads an abridged version of Daphne du Maurier's tale of romance and suspense.
8/8. With the help of Mrs Danvers and the magistrate, Maxim has learnt the last of Rebecca's secrets.
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.
