Trapeze Girl
Reporter Esther Rantzen
Another chance to see three programmes from the award-winning series which allowed talented amateurs the chance of their dreams - to take part in a spectacular professional event.
This week a 17-year-old girl from a children's home, who is an amateur gymnast, trains for the high trapeze. It is the most dangerous act in the circus - many trapeze artists fall to their death. We follow her two months' training, meet the stars of the circus - and then wait to see if she succeeds.
Trapeze Girl put a lump in my throat at times, making me want to cheer.
(DAILY MAIL)
The triumphant return of Esther Rantzen and her programme that makes people's dreums of a new experience come true.

: The Risk Business

It's Not Cricket
On one side the sporting superstars, who can cream millions of pounds from the firms whose clothes or equipment they carry on to the - televised - field of play. On the other side the television companies and sports organisations, who are desperately worried that unofficial advertising will drive sport oS our screens and eventually out of business.
Judith Hann follows Derby County Football Club, whose chase for sponsorship has already put them in conflict with the television authorities, and Michael Rodd examines the divided interests which threaten to drive sport, as we know it, off our television screens. It's a game in which the rules are changed from year to year, but in which they are broken with remorseless regularity. The television companies are now facing up to the biggest challenge of all-flagrant advertising at the very heart of the sporting action.
The battle will be fierce, and this programme sets the scene.

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.
