in The Intelligence Men
When Eric accidentally hums a bar or two from ' Swan Lake' in his Soho cafe, the shady international organisation ' Schlecht ' assume him to be one of them. And that's how Eric and Ernie come to be working for M15.

: The Block

Tuesday's Documentary
A film about some of the people who live below the poverty line in today's Welfare State.
The story begins at dawn in the London Borough of Southwark. The tenants of Chaucer House, a place for homeless families, man the barricades. Having turned over a car, boarded up the rent and welfare offices, blocked the entrances, they wait for the officials' next move.
Tonight's documentary examines the way the officials deal not only with the tenants of Chaucer but with those living Tin or below the poverty line - those caught in the poverty trap - people subjected daily to interrogation, investigation, those who seem to have been rejected by society.
Narrated by PETER MYERS

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.
