Drama on 3


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.
By Jeff Young. The year is 2040. Superblock is a 1,470-floortower block built from the salvaged concrete and bricks of the 67 Liverpool high rises demolished in 2005. 14,000 feet high, home to 140,000 people, it is an echo chamber reverberating with voices, like a monstrous filing cabinet full of the filed lives of everyone who ever lived there. Superblock was developed with tenants of the Liverpool high-rises and the Foundation of Art and Creative Technology.
With Jim Jones and Freda Smith
Music by Skyray Director Kate Rowland

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.
