: Champion House: Go West, Young Man

by Anthony Skene.
The last of the present series.
Starring Edward Chapman, Nicole Maurey, Maurice Kaufmann, Virginia Stride, James Kerry

Tonight's episode is the last in the present series and there is in it, appropriately, a sense of climax. Matters are coming to a head in Champion House. The struggle for control between Joe and Stephen must eventually end in a victory for one of them. Liz cannot stand for ever the strain of divided loyalties. Michele and Edward still dream of having their own business in the sun. So there is a deep feeling of unrest in the Champion family - like the heaving of a volcano before it erupts. And an eruption could mean the end of the Champions for ever.

: I Mean to Say: Follow the Instructions...

A series which takes a look at situations where communication can be difficult.
Directing others and following their directions. But can we?
Introduced by Magnus Magnusson.

Failure to express themselves adequately may prevent people from getting on in a job or from making the full use of social opportunities. The series I Mean to Say shows the kind of situations which inhibit communication and some of the ways in which these inhibitions can be overcome.
The subjects covered include the expressing of judgments and opinions; how the layman and the specialist can conduct a useful dialogue; the business of interviewing and being interviewed; how to speak in public.
A studio audience, representing a wide variety of tastes and occupations, takes part in the programmes. Experts give advice and encouragement.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
