: Where Do We Go from Here? Tuesday's Documentary

about the travelling people of Britain: gypsies - tinkers - nomads - potters by PHILIP DONNELLAN
The wanderers of our roads and lanes talk about their lives, their homes, their work, and their problem - us
Commentary by JOHN SEYMOUR
They left India 900 years ago and after travelling through Asia and Europe came to England about 1400. They were a dark, mysterious, clannish folk devoted to horses. They came to be called Egyptians -or gypsies for short.
The law saw them as a threat to order and stability-and still does apparently.
Today, existence is more difficult than ever for the travelling family, hate and misunderstanding more widespread. While the Irish tinkers slug it out with Authority in the city centres, the English gypsies try to keep to their ' underground ' life.
Independence has always been their pride. Individualism has served them for centuries as a way of life. Can it survive? Where do they go from here?
In this film we meet half a dozen families at the berry-picking in Perthshire or a squalid Kentish campsite; at a wedding in Eve-sham; a Yorkshire horse-fair and scraphunting on the Welsh border. The rise and fall of the leaf: page 6

Stars that Come and Go
Most stars remairr unchanging over huge periods of time; but some continually vary in brightness. Only long observation can reveal their secrets, and much of this patient work is done by amateurs.
PATRICK MOORE describes the different types of variable stars, and discusses with JOHN s. GLASHY the vital role of amateur observers.

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, and programmes to purchase from BBC Store and other providers.

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.
