: Richard Pryor - Was It Something I Said?

Vocally unrepressed stand-up Russell Brand pays tribute to perhaps the most venerated pioneer of comedic outspokenness and irreverence, Richard Pryor, who died in 2005, aged 65. Partly raised in his grandmother's brothel, Pryor would later imbibe his hyper-kinetic, expletive-rich and boundary-pushing stand-up act with experiences from his relatively unorthodox childhood. In 1980 he suffered burns to half of his body in a freebasing cocaine incident later revealed to be a suicide attempt. The programme features archive clips showcasing the goodnaturedly in-your-face star's massively influential persona - a hit on stage, film, television and record - and new interviews with those who worked with him. including comic actor Bill Cosby and writing partner Paul Mooney.

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.
