Who is Sylvia?
Miss Sylvia Gray , MBE, is an energetic lady in her mid-60s whose main passion in life has been the Women's Institute. She joined her local branch at 18 and has just retired after five years as national chairman of that indomitably respectable movement. No longer will she march on to the stage at the Royal Albert Hall in June to face 6,000 behatted countrywomen at the Annual General Meeting.
' People say all we do is make jam and sing Jerusalem, and that's nonsense ' she says briskly, but she is proud of the jam they make and boasts of a turnover of nearly £1 million at WI markets throughout the country.
Sylvia is also a successful businesswoman, and runs a popular hotel in the Cotswolds with the help of 19 women and one man.

The Killer Dust
In a Yorkshire village, high in the Pennines, about 35 people have died and over 100 more are dying from an incurable lung disease and cancer after inhaling asbestos dust at Acre Mill, an asbestos factory. At least 100 more died at another plant in Barking in the 1960s.
This has been called one of the major industrial tragedies of the century. In 1931 Parliament banned the escape of asbestos dust to the air during its manufacture. But despite this, hundreds more have since died throughout the industry.
As some Members of Parliament are pressing for a Public Inquiry at Acre Mill, this programme asks how did it happen?

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.
