: Something Else Debates

The third of four debates set up under the wing of the access programme Something Else. Political Matters
The theme of tonight's informal debate has been chosen by a group of young people from Rochdale who invite argument and discussion from a wide range of people of their own age. They are talking about whether young people have enough say in the things that affect their lives.
Made with the help of the COMMUNITY PROGRAMME UNIT

: Fighter Pilot

The last of eight films following the fortunes of the young men who aim to fly the fast jets of the Royal Air Force. Sport of Kings
There's just one student left. He's an officer and he can fly - but can he make a kill? The sole survivor learns to drop bombs and fire guns in the fight to live for another day.
For the first time he faces the realisation that he will be the one to carry a nuclear warhead; it will be for him to drop it on the right place. He begins to appreciate the implications of his chosen profession.

: The Oxfraud Incident

A Grapevine report
On 2 September police and the DHSS mounted their biggest ever operation against social security fraud. In a film shot in the weeks following that event, those involved - claimants, probation officers, solicitors and journalists-question the way in which the operation and the courts were handled. Those involved with the homeless and unemployed also question whether large-scale attacks on petty fraud confront the real issues. Subsequently, the DHSS office in Oxford has been on strike over staffing cuts, and the system itself is in crisis.
Professionals and claimants meet in the studio to discuss the long-term implications of The Oxfraud Incident.

: Forty Minutes

An Emotional Matter
The dilemma facing Mr Grimshaw is that whichever way he turns blood will be spilled. As a senior figure in Durham County's education office, he has to cull one or more of his local schools, for the very logical reason that the population is declining and ratepayers' money must be saved.
But for parents, teachers, villagers and children it is an emotional matter. As the harbinger of bad news during a ritual round of public meetings, Mr Grimshaw becomes the focus of local hatred. He is howled down, traduced and lampooned in song. But in the quiet of County Hall, where the decisions are made, he goes about his duty sure-footed and unmoved.

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.
