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.
Tuesday's Documentary
What do you expect from three years' higher education?
July is the month of the year when expectation runs high in schools, universities and poly-technics. Have you passed your A-levels - have you got your degree? And if you have is it worth going on to some form of higher education-and if you did get your degree what's it worth?
With a quarter of a million students studying for degrees the question of what they expect from higher education becomes important, not only to them but also to their parents and prospective employers.
Tonight's programme reflects our changing attitudes towards the value of a degree. Bernard Hollo way, Chief Careers Officer for Manchester University, examines the realities of the job market and the changing expectations of the graduates. 'We can say' says HOLLOWAY, that graduates are no longer very special people -if ever they were.' Jobs done by people with school certificates 30 years ago are going to be done in future by graduates.

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.
