Entertainer Bruce Forsyth provides a personal tribute to singer, dancer, musician and consummate showman Sammy Davis Jr (1925-90), who is perhaps best known to younger listeners as a member of the Rat Pack. Forsyth warmly recalls sharing the stage with Davis Jr in 1980, and profiles a man whose life was marked by political controversy, racial prejudice, tragedy and a surfeit of talent. Featuring new interviews with Paul Anka, Engelbert Humperdinck, Lionel Blair and pianist/composer Laurie Holloway. Plus archive material from Davis Jr's live performances and interviews.

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
