: Trials of Life: 5: One Degree Over

The perils of human selection
A new series of documentary films narrated and produced by Roger Mills
From cradle to grave, we are all on trial - awaiting some verdict. It can be 'pass' or 'fail.' It can be 'accepted' or 'rejected.'

Ten years ago, at Sebright Junior School, Shoreditch, you couldn't pick between George and Ronnie Ferris. But last June, George collected a B.Sc. (Econ) at the London School of Economics, while Ronnie delivered goods door-to-door a few streets away. Down the years, one examination after another had 'selected' George and 'rejected' Ronnie.
Today one brother is ripe for 'a career': the other landed with 'a job.' But who actually got the best of the deal? George?... or Ronnie?


Narrator/Producer: Roger Mills
Subject: George Ferris
Subject: Ronnie Ferris

: Wayne in Action: McLintock

Wide screen adventure with Big John in his greatest roles
Tonight John Wayne stars with Maureen O'Hara, Yvonne de Carlo

John Wayne plays George Washington McLintock, cattle baron, banker and town boss, in this lively Western which blends comedy with action. The only flaw in his prosperous, successful life is a matrimonial rift, and when his wife - the beautiful Maureen O'Hara - returns to find a lovely widowed housekeeper (Yvonne de Carlo) the sparks begin to fly. What with troubles in the town and some of the wildest fights ever filmed, McLintock has trouble all the way.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
