: Kingswood:A Comprehensive School

A series of nine films
2: If you don't die, you'll be a headmaster'
A posthumous child, born six months after the death of his own father, Brian Tyler is now father figure to 1,000 pupils. As Kingswood's Head he is teacher, administrator, counsellor and ultimate arbiter of its style and standards.
A staunch defender of the comprehensive system in general and Kingswood in particular, BRIAN TYLER is observed as he copes with the daily chores of school life. At the same time the film examines his attitude to children in a school with no uniform, discipline in a school with no corporal punishment and private education in a school that is geographically squeezed between two of England's famous public schools, Oundle and Uppingham.

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.
