: The Good Life: Tony Bennettat 80

2/4. Russell Davies celebrates the life and career of Tony Bennett , who remains the most revered crooner from the first generation to take its cues from Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra. Best known for his 1962 Grammy-winnng ballad I Left My Heart in San Francisco, Bennett (originally Benedetto) first hit big in 1951 with Because of You. Other top tunes like Cold, Cold Heart, Rags to Riches and Stranger in Paradise established the singer as distinctly different from Sinatra. He has interpreted the great American songwriters and performed with the likes of Count Basie, Art Blakey , kd lang, Bonnie Raitt and BB King. And he is no stranger to today's youth.

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.
