Open Space

Synopsis

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.
Inner City Blues
On election night
Mrs Thatcher committed herself to tackling Britain's inner cities. For the last 15 years Open Space and its predecessor Open Door have enabled people to make programmes under their own editorial control, many of which have come from inner city groups.
This rich archive is drawn upon to present a portrait of the deepening urban crisis through the eyes of the people who have to live with the problems and have struggled to solve them.
From more than a dozen very different communities filmed during the last 15 years, the issues remain disturbingly similar - bad housing, social dereliction, economic decline and mass unemployment. Film editor PETER CLARKE
Series producer PETER LEE-WRIGHT Director PHILIP MORROW Producer GILES OAKLEY
Open Space is the series where the public can make programmes under their own editorial control helped by the Community Programme Unit.

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.
