with Susan King Man and Dog
In the first of a new series of six programmes, Susan looks at the unique relationship between man and dog. Dogs have been working with man for thousands of years, hunting, hauling, herding and providing him with entertainment and companionship. In the course of her investigations, Susan is rescued from a lake by a Newfoundland, follows a pack of hounds on foot in the fells and discovers they suffer from nasal fatigue and need to rest their noses.

Continuing the Great National Debate on Education
Reporters Jeremy James and Anna Ford
If you could afford it, would you pay to educate your child if you did not like the local comprehensive? The parents of a small school in Bristol have decided 'yes'.
Bristol Cathedral School is an 800-year-old Grammar School for bright boys selected on ability. When the Government decided to withdraw its subsidy - the Direct Grant - the school had three choices. Go comprehensive, go independent, or close. It went independent last term with fees of Â£666 per year.
Now bright boys from poorer homes will be excluded. Yet the school believes there will always be those who will find the money for a Grammar School education.
In this film, staff, parents and boys explain why.
Afterwards in the studio, Margaret Jackson, MP, Under-Secretary for Education, and Norman St John-Stevas, MP, opposition spokesman on Education, discuss what is happening to our schools with parents and teachers from all over Britain.
Norman St John-Stevas,
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.
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.
