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.
In the first programme of the series the headmaster told the new pupils that they came to Radley to learn the 'right habits for life'. Now, seven years after the series was filmed, discover if they did.
The children are now adults: the music scholar has become a sculptor, the revolutionary a city broker, the adolescent misfit sells fine art and the A-level candidate has joined the Royal Scots Dragoon
Guards. They talk frankly about their lives, the series and the school which they all have in common.

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.
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.
