: The Man Who Thought He Owned Broadway

A centenary reassessment of George M. Cohan , America's original song and dance man
Written and introduced by Benny Green
BENNY: It is ironic that Cohan, producer and star of 86 shows, who wrote 79 of them, and was known as the Prince of Broadway, should today be remembered, vividly, even affectionately, in terms of an impersonation by another actor - Jimmy Cagney in the 1942 film Yankee Doodle Dandy.
COHAN: Why ironic? It was the truth, wasn't it? HIS DAUGHTER: No, Pa, it wasn .t. It was nothing like you. It was only you as you would have wished people to rememberyou.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
