Queens': A Cambridge College


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.
Getting In
The first in a new ten-part series
Petrified sixth-formers are put through their paces during nerve-racking interviews for admission to
Cambridge. The dons go through this process every year. For the candidates there's only one chance: careers and futures are in the balance.
The candidates:
The grammar-school boy: he seems to know more about his subject than his interviewers. Will this put them off?
The comprehensive-school girl: as the political argument gets more heated, the interviewers seem more and more impressed.
The public-school boy: as the questions get tougher his stammer gets worse. Will his questioners be sympathetic? Photography

BBC Two England, 16 October 1985 20.15

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.
