H.R.H. The Duke of Edinburgh
Today at a special Press Conference at St. James's Palace The Duke of Edinburgh outlined the future development of his Youth Training Scheme - the Duke of Edinburgh's Award.
The Scheme is designed as an introduction to leisure time activities, a challenge to the individual to personal achievement and as a guide to those people and organisations who are concerned about the development of our future citizens. "Young people growing up in modem society have many difficulties to face and not many opportunities for personal achievement" H.R.H. The Duke of Edinburgh
Michael Barratt who was there among the members of the Press, introduces this edited programme.

5: We Shall Overcome
Almost every weekend somewhere in this country someone will be marching or picketing or sitting down in protest. Increasingly demonstrations have become for some people an accepted way of trying to get something changed. But just how effective is this kind of direct action?

: WINTER IN MOSCOW

Tuesday's Documentary The story of a lost dream
A further chapter in Malcolm Muggeridge 's television autobiography
In 1932 Malcolm Muggeridge went to Moscow as correspondent for the Manchester Guardian. As a young and ardent Socialist he regarded it as an assignment to Utopia. Instead of the perfect society he found chicanery, brutality, and dictatorship; art, architecture, literature, and the cinema-all toeing the Party line; foreign journalists and gullible tourists from the Western intelligentsia all joining in fatuous praise of a system which, by means of secret police, show trials, and enforced famine, was taking millions of Soviet lives. For Malcolm Muggeridge it was indeed the end of a dream and the disillusionment marked a turning point in his life. with Kitty Muggeridge

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.
