In at the Deep End


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.
Rock Video Director
Paul Heiney has been a radio and television presenter for
12 years. Now he must master a very different world - behind the cameras. His target is to direct a video for a major rock star. 'I won't say a bad video can ruin a good song,' warns Top of the Pops producer Michael Hurll , 'but it could ruin a group.' Paul goes to the BBC's training studio to learn to direct a pop number. Film director Ken Russell helps him make a demonstration video which, Paul hopes, will convince Bananarama that he's got what it takes to make the promo for their new single 'A trick of the night'. It will mean directing a film crew of 30 all through the night and the film must be good enough to be shown on those all-important TV pop programmes. Film cameramen

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.
