Bel Mooney about turning points in his life.
Married and a father before the age of 21, he experienced 'a crash course in reality', which meant forgoing the hedonistic lifestyles of the early 60s and embarking on a career. He went into advertising and began to earn a lot of money.

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

understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.

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.
