2/3. To mark the 20th anniversary of the death of flamboyant Polish-Italian-American pianist and entertainer Liberace (born Wladziu Valentino Liberace), Russell Davies presents a glitter-rich celebration of the quintessentially camp fixture of 50s and 60s stage and screen who later emerged as a Las Vegas superstar and a restaurateur. Cheery, dignified and accessorised to the hilt by dazzle, diamonds, fur and candelabras, Liberace always denied being homosexual despite certain seemingly obvious signs. In
February 1987 he died, aged 67, of Aids-related illnesses. Recalling the life of the star are comedian Phyllis Diller , Llberace's designer/fur-maker, Anna Nateece , and his long-time manager's widow (Billie Heller ) and daughter (Liz Heller ). Plus input from those associated with the Liberace Museum, including tribute performer Wes Winters.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
