Woman's Hour


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.
Where do we go from here? Some hopes, aspirations, and fears for the 1970s, from, among others, Gordon Clyde, Professor Asa Briggs, Charlotte Mitchell, Gerald Leach, Alice Hope, Sir Paul Reilly and Johnny Morris.
And for once we have no serial, as we want to devote the whole hour to the coming decade - 'Where do we go from here?'
The first half includes specialist views on likely developments in such fields as medicine, design, and social welfare in the 1970s. How we may be living in 10 years' time is the theme for the second half - and it will be a free discussion among 10 people in the studio. Is the pace of change going to make us alter our way of life increasingly quickly - do we look forward to it, or dread it? (The Sixties: see pages 101-106)

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.
