Making Slough Happy


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.
New series 1/4. The target of John Betjemen's friendly bombs and reckoned to be one of the 50 worst places to live in the UK, it's fair to say that the Berkshire town of Slough has a bit of an image problem; it's hardly surprising, then, that some of its folk are feeling a bit glum. In this intriguing social experiment, six experts in disciplines ranging from psychology to economics set out to raise happiness levels in the town. Will a "two-for-one" giveaway on flowers win a smile? A good old sing-song? Or how about that tried-and-tested banisher of the black dog - "graveyard therapy"? With strong language.

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.
