: SCHOOL AND HOME

Programmes for parents of secondary school children
1: Starting Secondary School
Next autumn many children will become members of a larger community. What lies ahead for them and their parents?
Modern educationists agree that the child who gets the greatest help from his parents is the one who makes the fullest use of his educational opportunities.
In these programmes parents are given an insight into how they can help their child when he starts secondary school and at the important moment at the end of his third year when he decides on some degree of specialisation in preparation for his future career. Other programmes will show a mixed panel of parents and teachers discussing how they can co-operate more; how they can help the child to organise his time and his homework; and talk about the friendships he makes

: TRAINING IN SKILLS

-no more of Nelly?
1: Benefits
Presented by David Shute with Douglas Seymour
Ian Goodhand , Eric Wheatcroft
Operators used to learn on the job ' sitting next to Nelly,' but in a modern fast-moving age this is no longer efficient. Even before the Industrial Training Act a quiet revolution was under way: now the technique of Skills Analysis is spreading.
This starts by critical analysis of how the experienced worker does the job. Then exercises are planned to begin a step-by-step training to build speed and stamina.
By these methods installers of central heating are trained in a week. the accident rate among scaffolders is cut, and in valve assembly production is up by 30 per cent, while training time has been halved

: MEETING POINT

The Hymn and Think Man
Britain's own version of America's Billy Graham operates from an office over a dry-cleaner's shop in Eastbourne, Sussex. He has a public relations officer, a business organisation and a fully-equipped studio where ' gospel messaged' are recorded for transmission by radio stations in the U.S.A., Europe, and the Far East.
Yet few people have heard of Dr. Eric Hutchings , although his crusade meetings are often packed and he has been an Evangelist for more than twenty years.
Tonight's programme takes a close look at this home-grown business of Evangelism and shows what people think of Dr. Hutchings as a man, and how they regard his crusades
Producer, HUGH PITT from the South and West
Postponed from April 7

: MR. NOAH BEHAVIN' MIGHTY WELL

Bible stories by children and for children
1: Who made the Elephant? told by Tom Coyne with Jean Holden and The Singing Stewarts
Monsters, puppets, and pictures by the children of WESTON FAVELL COUNTY PRIMARY SCHOOL, NORTHAMPTON
Directed by BARRIE EDGAR
Written and produced by PHILIP TURNER from the Midlands
A seven-foot boa constrictor, a bottle-fed lamb, two children voyaging on a lake as crew on a ten-foot Noah's Ark, and a tiddlywink tower are some of the surprising ingredients of these six children's Bible programmes.
The stories-from the Creation to Jacob and his ladder-are told by Tom Coyne and illustrated by the children, who have made them extremely good fun as well

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
