: Unemployment:

Public Enemy No 1
In 1957, when unemployment was less than 350,000, the slogan was 'You've never had it so good.' If someone then had predicted that 20 years later the jobless would total over one-and-a-half-million with no riots or political upheavals, that person would surely have been led away quietly.
Now, in 1978, CHRISTOPHER BRASHER looks ahead to 2001 with the help of a specially-commissioned survey. How many will be unemployed then? Will society be split between those in work and those condemned to the dole? If so, will there be violence ... terrorism? Or will we have transformed our attitude to work, cutting the working week and spending more time on the things that interest us?
This programme examines the forces at work in Britain today and looks for a cure for one of the most dangerous diseases of Western society.

: The Inner Game

An Everyman report by Peter France
Sport has always been a competition for physical supremacy, but many leading athletes today are discovering that it can play a radically deeper part in their lives: that sport can be their path to enlightenment.
Ian Thompson: "I get out of running what a lot of people get out of going to church."
Arthur Ashe: "It's like having a nervous breakdown but you don't care."
David Hemery: "Sport can be a Western form of zen."
The inner game is both a technique and a philosophy of sport. Tim Gallwey, author of "The Inner Game of Tennis", teaches Peter France the technique by means of a tennis lesson: "You learn control only when you lose control." Racing driver Jackie Stewart, tennis players Arthur Ashe and Mark Cox, cricketer Mike Brearley, marathon-runner Ian Thompson, hurdler David Hemery, report on their personal experiences of the wider philosophy: that sport is the ideal means of fusing body, mind and spirit; and can generate ecstatic states surprisingly similar to those described by religious mystics.

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.
