: Top Sailing

Big Boat Cruising
Of the millions of people in Britain who go sailing or motor-boating each year, many choose the relaxation of cruising. Once afloat, there are no cars, next-door neighbours or telephones to worry about. To avoid the problems of buying and keeping a boat, some people join a sailing club. For a week in early May, Martin Muncaster followed the crew of the Island Cruising Club's schooner Hoshi to France and the Channel Islands. The club members came from all walks of life, and varied from hardened sea-dogs to complete beginners.

Looks at the world of advertising and marketing Tonight:
Rolling the Bandwagon
Walt Disney are soon to launch their most ambitious motion picture of all time, a 20-million-dollar space epic called The Black Hole. In anticipation shops and stores are stocking up with toys, books, games, clothing and a whole range of merchandise which has been planned for nearly two years.
It's the latest bandwagon to be exploited by the experts in character merchandising. But what makes a bandwagon roll? And what profits can be pulled on board?

: Person to Person

In a new series of special profiles David Dimbleby talks to eight well-known men and women. 7: Sir Peter Hall
SIR PETER HALL , much-acclaimed, much-criticised director of the National Theatre, dislikes being interviewed. 'My real self would rather play the piano,' he claims. On the other hand, the entertainer has ' got to cry his wares if he wants to be heard.'
So Sir Peter talks about his East Anglian childhood and his struggle to succeed, about his work with the Royal Shakespeare Company. about opera and about the administrative burden he carries. With an annual subsidy of £3J-million threatened with cuts, one crippling strike behind him and the constant danger of another to come, he has plenty to worry about.

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.
