Six films which go behind the scenes of places which are part of the British way of life. 5: Greyhound Racing - Walthamstow
Round and round the dog track at Walthamstow goes 75-year-old Leo Olley , painting everything that doesn't move. He's there every day before the punters arrive, singing old wartime songs and making sure all is spick and span. 'I've got a job for life', he says, 'it's just like the Forth Bridge.'
Greyhound racing is Britain's second most popular sport.
It's colourful and exciting and packed with a cross-section of larger than life characters. Johanna Beumer , schoolmistress by day, owner and punter by night, dresses from head to toe in either red, white or blue, depending on the colour her dog is wearing. Tonight it's red.
Some you win, some you lose. But as trainer Louis Solomon explains, 'If you took away the element of surprise, people would stop coming.' Photography IAN HILTON

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.
