Eddie Izzard , John Fortune ,
Dick Gregory and Stewart Lee , and features an exclusive interview with Lenny's daughter, Kitty Bruce. Producer Hilary Robinson

3/4. Petula Clark profiles the French chanteuse Edith Piaf
(born Edith Giovanna Gassion ), who died of cancer in 1963, aged 47, following a career marked by dramatic and soaring performances. This edition recalls the recording in 1946 of one of her key works - La Vie en Rose - and the first of her nine tours to
America, where she fell in love with boxer Marcel Cerdan , whose 1949 death in a plane crash proved devastating for the singer.

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.
