: Where Do I Begin?The Andy Williams Story

2/4. Donny Osmond continues a profile of easy-listening star Andy Williams , who was 80 last week.
Thanks to the singer's transatlantic number one, Butterfly (1957), his own weekly US TV variety show (from 1962) and the distinctive
US/UK number two, Can't Get Used to Losing You (1963, a hit for the Beat in 1983), the ever smiling and enthusiastic crooner with an unusually smooth delivery became a kingpin of pasteurised family entertainment. His other defining recordings include Happy Heart and his vocal takes on popular instrumentals, including Music to Watch Girls by (from a 1967 Diet Pepsi ad) and the film themes Moon River and (Where Do I Begin) Love Story.

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.
