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.
Last of a six-part series in which bosses turn a video camera on themselves.
A Head's Tale. HeadteacherPat
Collings faces a stressful year.
Responsible for a large comprehensive school in south Derby, she has many day-to-day demands on hertime: implementing changes in education policy, completing paperwork, balancing a dwindling budget, and bolsteringthe morale ofthe staff.
Unforeseen complications, such as havingto advise on shelf construction in the canteen, distract herfrom the task of maintaining staff numbers without compromising quality.
She is also concerned that the long and gruelling hours she works are taking a toll on her private life. This documentary combines an examination of education in the 1990s with a portrait of a woman who worries about the sacrifices she has had to make.
Producer Edi Smockum; Series producer Bob Long

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.
