Grass Roots by JOE ASHTON
Dramatised for radio by STEPHEN WARELAM
Politics Is us, the workers. Us who are always the ones to get the dirty end of the stick. It is always us who are expected to put up with low wages, lousy schools, poor pensions, ancient hospitals and the rotten monotonous jobs. And it is always them who will tell us what to do.'

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.
