: OLD BILL

A memoir of BILLY COTTON
Today would have been Billy Cotton 's seventieth birthday and tonight Cliff Michelmore talks to some people who knew him when he was a boy and others who have worked, played, soldiered, flown, and raced with him over seventy years.
Script associate, Peter Moore
Director. Jim FRANKLIN
Producer, MICHAEL MILLS
Tom Sloan , BBC-tv's Head of Light Entertainment, has said of Billy Cotton ... ' I never knew a man who realised so much that life was for living. Into his career he packed enough to satisfy ten men ... After the first war he started his own band-and worked his way to the top the hard way.
' He had a go at bus conducting, played football for Wimbledon and Brentford. He did a bit of boxing ... he had his own plane ... he became one of the great personalities of Brooklands ... he was indeed top of the bill in everything he did.'

: UNIVERSITY FORUM

A series of programmes in which members of British universities discuss important issues of our time with national and international figures.
In this programme
Robin Day introduces
LORD BEECHING to members of the student body and teaching staff in the Students Union Building,
UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHAMPTON
Directed by RAY COLLEY
Produced by MARGARET DOUGLAS
Is the existing machinery of government in Britain adequate to deal with the problems of a complex modern state? How can we best combine efficiency in man. aging our affairs with democratic control? And have we got democratic control anyway? Recently the Conservative Shadow Home Secretary said that Parliament had become ' virtually an elective dictatorship and public regard for politicians of all parties seems very low.
Lord Beeching, who is discussing these questions tonight, feels strongly that the only way to save democracy is to reform government so that our affairs can be run more efficiently. As Dr. Beeching, of course, he became a national figure when he was seconded from industry to halt the vast financial losses of the railways.

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.
