: Europa

A postman walks three hours across a marsh in northern Germany to deliver a single parcel. When he retires in a few months' time, he won't be replaced. In a profit conscious age, the West German Post Office can't afford it. Can public services survive? The Europeans have their doubts as we do in Great Britain. Reports from European television look at the costs of running them and what can be done.

: Controversy

Professor C. B. Cox argues that The Notion of Equality is a Threat to Education
Equality of opportunity - of access to all levels of education based on merit - has to some extent been achieved. But some educationalists believe this is not enough, that it still leaves society divided into two unequal classes. They want ' education for fraternity ' and the teaching of working-class culture in our schools which, they say, are dominated by middle-class values.
Professor Cox believes this notion of equality is a threat to the high culture and standards which education has traditionally provided. He argues his case before an invited audience in the theatre of the Royal Institution, London, with: Dr A. H. Halsey , Director of the Department of Social Studies, Oxford University, and other critics. Chairman

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.
