: Panorama

Introduced by David Dimbleby including
The School That Came Apart
4 Working in the classroom became less and less possible to maintain. Children scampered about the building, dashed in or out, or sat around endlessly playing gamesmonopoly, ludo, chess, draughts, snakes and ladders.'
This is how MRS DOLLY WALKER described progressive education as introduced to the London junior school at which she worked. At William Tyndale School, well over two-thirds of the children were withdrawn before the bitter conflict between teachers, parents and managers finally brought the school to a halt.
Panorama presents the dramatic debate that emerged at the subsequent Public Enquiry with the aid of actors to give the evidence heard from each side. It shows the growing discussion between the traditionalists and the progressives in our schools at its most extreme.

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.
