This week:
BORN TO LOSE
A Twilight Zone sounds as though it might be something natural, even attractive. But it's the name given by planners and pundits to a condition of despair. In nearly every city in this country there are Twilight Zones: where the poor are powerless, the needy neglected and the future is dark and without help. Those born into this kind of twilight can expect nothing but the worst schools, the worst hospitals and the worst housing, and should expect nothing more for their children and their children's children. If you get on, you get out. But most are trapped-in a cycle where aspiration, even self-respect, dies young.
In London at Whitsun, some of them marched from one Twilight area to another. While most of us relaxed they tried to protest. Man Alive marched with them and looked at what they are struggling to escape; and asks-is there any way out if you are born to lose?

: POT BLACK

BBC-2 Knockout Snooker Competition
An introductory programme to the coming seven weeks' single-frame series featuring the world's top eight snooker players:
Gary Owen Fred Davis (above) Jack Rea Rex Williams John Pulman Kingsley Kennerley
Ray Reardon John Spencer
... and tonight they're all round the same table!
Rarely can any sport, even on television, offer its supporters the top eight exponents of the game in one fifteen-minute appearance. Tonight BBC-2 does just that. Anyone who knows his snooker will agree that these names tonight are the top in their field.
If, on the other hand, your knowledge of the game is limited then we have the best instructors available to teach you some of the tricks of the table. Instead of a pointer these teachers use a billiard cue-in a very spectacular way-and confirm that they really are the masters.
Introduced by Keith Macklin and Ted Lowe
Design, Myles Lang
Production team, Reg Perrin David Kenning
Production, PHILIP LEWIS from the Midlands

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.
