: At A Time Like This: Girls Leaving School: 1: Carol Haynes

This week: Girls Leaving School

Carol Haynes is a short, jolly Yorkshire lass. Her Dad works at a pit, her mother keeps house in Goldthorpe, a mining village on the South Yorkshire coalfield. Last year Carol Haynes left school not because she was not bright enough to stay on, or because she wanted to leave, or because her parents needed the money, but because her parents wanted her to leave. Now she has had a year away from books, blackboards, chalk, and other children. Instead of exercising her mind on reading, writing, and arithmetic, she has been exercising her fingers on sewing seams for underpants in a textile factory. Last year her headmaster said: 'Carol could have taken seven or eight O-levels. She could have gone on to take A-levels and most probably could have gone on to university'. But Carol Haynes lives in an area where boys have jobs and girls have husbands. For a year we've watched her make the transition from school to the adult world. This year she's just sixteen.

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.
