: Maths Help

A series of 12 programmes aimed at giving direct help to all those having difficulty with O-level maths.
4: Symbols
Many people are frightened just by the look of mathematics. The unfamiliarity of the language of mathematics is daunting. Yet to someone who can't read, the appearance of the daily newspaper must be equally daunting.
Once you have learned to read the symbols of mathematics then you begin to appreciate the power that they give you in the solution of problems. This programme looks at a guessing game and a sequence to bring out the simplification and power that symbols give.

: Holiday

Introduced by Cliff Michelmore
Flotilla cruising holidays offer small-boat enthusiasts the opportunity of sailing new waters, but provide them with the security of an experienced skipper in a lead boat.
Tom Savage investigates the latest variation on this theme, sailing in the warm waters around the Florida Keys. A holiday on a working farm has considerable appeal to families-all that farmhouse cooking and fresh country air does the children a world of good. And when the farm is in Denmark, there are very Pleasant bonuses.

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.
