: Bobby Darin - a Man In a Hurry

Tim Rice tells the story of singer. songwriter musician and actor Bobby Darin (born Walden Robert Cassotto ), who caught the ear of the public first in 1958 with Splish Splash but then hit big as a stylish crooner with Dream Lover, Mack the Knife (Top US single of 1959) and Beyond the Sea - his
Sinatra-like treatment of the French ballad La Mer. A protest-minded
Las Vegas star, he straddled many genres, including country (Things, 1962) and folk (a 1966 hit with Tim Hardin 's If I Were a Carpenter).
Plagued with heart trouble since childhood, Darin died in 1973, aged 37, and was the subject of Kevin Spacey 's 2004 biopic Beyond the Sea. Featuring new interviews with Darin's manager, second wife, valet, pianist, mentor and many others. Producer Graham Pass

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.
