: Ten Years On

The Set
A documentary that confronts a group of people with a younger version of themselves. In the vaults of the BBC there is a film about young people in Bournemouth, ' middle- to upper-middle, 20 to 25 years old.'
Society changed, and The Set settled down, but the celluloid images remain to see what ten years of life have done to them, and whether a youth spent in Bournemouth prepares you for life.
Success and failure in careers, hopes realised, marriages that worked and a marriage that didn't, lives that haven'changed at all.
Different responses-from a girl who left: 'Bournemouth didn'really fit me for life outside.' And a man who stayed and raised his family: ' Just to survive the last ten years is an achievement.' And the girl whose marriage failed: ' I really don'think I was in love. I suppose I was getting married for the reason that everybody else was doing it, all my friends, and I thought that this was right.' Commentary PAUL MORIARTY

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.

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