This lecture by Dr Dennis Sciama recorded at the University of St Andrews, is the first of an annual series by the Royal Astronomical Society presented in collaboration with the Open University,

Big Smile, Please
The Costa Brava might be just as cheap these days, but for a lot of people, there's still nothing to beat the good old traditional holiday camp.
In the week John Pitman visited a holiday camp at Selsey in Sussex, the place was booked out - 1,200 gathered together, all out to enjoy themselves. Well, most of them. You can'please all the people all the time.
There were boys looking for girls, girls looking for boys. Confident people who mix easily; shy people who don't. There were families who come every year and those who had never been before - and some who won'come again.
And always there, ever ready to make you smile, were the Blue-coats, personality-plus people: stars in their own little galaxy, but always hoping that some day someone will spot them, give them a break and take them away from it all.

: By Way of a Change

The third of six programmes. Global Village Trucking Co
A pop group, their girl friends, agents, promoters and managers, all live together in noisy harmony in a tumbledown cottage in the wilds of Norfolk. Trundling their old bus around the country, playing for nothing when the spirit moves them, they bring to their music a kind of togetherness that appeals to thousands of young people everywhere.

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.

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.
