: The Philpott File Tuesday's Documentary

The File on A Pension of Sunshine A film from the series with Trevor Philpott
The number of British people going abroad to retire is doubling every year. The Englishman's dream of a pleasant old age is no longer one of roses around a cottage door in Devon. It is more likely to be geraniums around a Mediterranean balcony. He wants a little place where the taxes are low, the living is easy, and the sun is always shining.
A vast industry has grown up to make his dream come true, an industry which has grown fat selling plots of sunshine all the way from Greece to the Caribbean. And every year when retirement day arrives, thousands of ordinary British people sell up their homes in Britain and head for the sun to live in a foreign land amongst foreigners.
They are looking for a warmer, brighter, happier life. Do they find it? What is the price they have to pay?
Produced and directed by PETER ROBINSON

: A Champion Fights Back

Graham Hill , world champion racing driver in 1962 and 1968, crashed in the United States Grand Prix last October and seriously injured both his legs. This is the story of his race against time to get fit for the first
Grand Prix of 1970 in South Africa next Saturday.
Early days in plaster in a hospital bed; his first walk on crutches; wheelchair visits to dinners and dances; his first attempts to drive and fly again -MAXWELL BOYD covers the events in Graham Hill's recovery up to the moment last Sunday when he said goodbye to his family at London Airport to fly to Johannesburg. There, tomorrow, on the Kyalami circuit, Graham Hill is due to test drive a Lotus 49C entered by Rob Walker and decide if he is well enough to be on the starting grid on Saturday. It is the most difficult decision of his career.

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.
