16 Up Showcase


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
To mark International Youth Year Steve Blacknell introduces a two-part festival of films and videos made by young people.
Part 1 - BBC1 plays host to an amazing variety of movies made by young people aged between 15 and 25, using super-8 and 16mm film, VHS and U-matic, working mostly on shoe-string budgets.
The line-up includes dramas and documentaries, animations, music videos, scratch videos and material that defies classification. With over 200 entries to choose from, Showcase worked with a panel of six young people to make this final selection. Titles include The Girl that Cried Wolf, The Adventures of Ray Cathode, Not Your Ordinary Boring Day and Bloodless Days.
Plus at 11.30* a full-length feature: The Piper - an updated version of the Pied
Piper by West Surrey College student Robert Bangura , in which an 8-year-old girl plays the part of the Piper (there are no rats). Reviewing the screenings Verity Lambert. Showcase selection panel Nadine Marsh-Edwards

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
