3: The Collection
Six months' work, a fortune and a reputation depend on half an hour.
On 26 April 1972 a rising fashion designer, Bill Gibb , launched his first independent autumn collection. Though unknown to a wider public, his name was sufficient to attract the cream of the fashion press, buyers from Europe and America, and a host of showbiz customers. At 11.30, after three hours of mounting tension, Bill Gibb 's ordeal began. While the models flounced and pirouetted before the invited audience, nerves grew taut and strained backstage. For haunting the whole event was the spectre of failure, and the knowledge that something could so easily go wrong.

: Music on 2

Fou Ts'ong
The only thing which makes me go on living is to have the chance to fulfil myself - in my case, it is to make music.
This evening's film is centred on pianist fou TS'ONG'S continual preparations for concerts. He is seen in rehearsal with Kyung Wha Chung and in conversation with Martin Bernal about modern China. It is about the isolation of an artist whose admiration for Mao Tse-tung brings him into continual conflict with the art he must practise for his own survival.

This week: Danger-Men at Work Every year hundreds of workers contract - even die from - illnesses which they can'understand, let alone pronounce. Yet people continue to work with substances that can subsequently prove fatal. Some do it because they're ignorant of the dangers; others because they want the money and are prepared to take risks.
This week a Man Alive film team looks at the hazards, and in the studio DESMOND WILCOX asks: why it is so difficult to establish who is to blame - who is to compensate the victims?

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 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 find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

This is a historical record of both 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.
