: The Risk Business

A series of six programmes 1: Truck
For 12 years, Tomorrow's World has demonstrated more than 2,500 inventions and prototypes. Raymond Baxter , William Woollard and Michael Rodd now report on the hazards facing anyone who takes a new idea along the perilous road from the drawing board to the market place.
This first programme looks at the Cinderella of the British Motor Industry - Leyland's Truck and Bus Group. It has always made a profit but over the years most of it has been handed back to the ailing car division. Then the Ryder report made the Truck Group a profitcentre and Ron Ellis , the Manager of Truck and Bus, can move into battle in Europe with some of our best young engineers. The Risk Business lifts the covers on Ron Ellis 's biggest gamble, the still-secret plans for the truck he hopes to launch in 1978. Producer PATRICK UDEN

: Sailor: 1: Last Run Ashore

A frank account of life on the ocean wave in one of Her Majesty's ships.
A series of ten programmes
The pubs and clubs of Devonport's notorious Union Street are throbbing with laughter and life. Hundreds of sailors - out on a gaudy night ashore - drink away their last hours on home soil for six months. On the morning tide the largest ship in the fleet will thread her way out of the trickiest harbour in the land. The Captain of HMS Ark Royal and his Commander have a testing few hours ahead - a challenging exercise in navigation and the task of forging the sailors once more into a shipshape crew.
As Ark inches into the open sea, the vice of naval discipline begins to bite...

: Play for Today

Back of Beyond by JULIA JONES starring Rachel Roberts as Olwen * with Edward Hardwicke as Gareth Diana Bishop as Megan Michael Griffiths as David and Lynne Jones as Rachel Olwen lives in a tumbledown farm up in the mountains - a lonely widow, virtually a recluse. Her only human contact is with the occasional shopkeeper and young Rachel, who delivers her papers.
For Rachel her visits to Olwen are half adventure, half honest friendship. But they also mean a time to ' put aside childish things.'
Back of Beyond had delicacu and rare conviction. (DAILY MAIL) A haunting portrait of a woman alone ... Rachel Roberts managed, as few actresses do, to suggest that she had been part of a rural landscape for many years. (DAILY TELEGRAPH)

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.
