: Inside Japan: 7: Grey Youth

A series of 11 films
More than 90 per cent of Japanese children stay at school until they're 18 and, for many, success at school has been the key to success in later life. The high standard of education has also been one of the main reasons for Japan's spectacular economic success. But there's been growing concern recently over the pressures generated by the country's highly competitive educational system. This film is a portrait of the schools in a typical suburb of the large industrial city of Osaka.

: Discovering English Churches

A series of ten programmes with Donald Sinden
9: Squire and Parson
In the 17th and 18th centuries links between the manor and the church were strong. At Cottesbrooke in Northamptonshire, All Saints Church was fitted out with boxpews, three-decker pulpit and a private family pew for the squire. The interior here neatly delineates the social hierarchy of the village and provides a perfect picture of a country Sunday. The squire's authority was virtually absolute, and, in this, the age of the amateur architect, his influence on the design of the parish church was growing too. At Little Stanmore in Middlesex, the Duke of Chandos demolished all but the tower of the church of St Lawrence and rebuilt it in the latest classical style. He commissioned the best artists he could afford to create a treasure house of a church that reflects not the corporate pride of the parish, but the wealth and status of one man.

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.
