Whicker's World


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.
Living with Uncle Sam
A series of ten films in which Alan Whicker talks to a wide range of enterprising Brits who've gone to live and work in the USA.
3: You've Got to Jog, See an Analyst - and Make Love Energetically ...
Richard Wrigley has some forthright thoughts on America, and in particular on business and sex. At 38, with no financial background, he's creating in Manhattan a million-dollar brewery as well as a vast ice-rink in New
York's Central Park. He has no bank account and no credit rating but says thousands of dollars have gone through his mattress. Brendan Fearon , with a BA from Manchester University, is also working in Central
Park - driving a horse-drawn carriage - and experiencing some of the romance himself. When most of the muggers are in bed, Richard Lord , who lives with a pet eel, takes the
4.0 am subway to Wall Street - not to a bank but to the Fulton Fish Market to pursue his obsession.

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.
