: Heart of the Matter

The last in the series with David Jessel
Times were never easy in Glyncorrwg, a small mining community near Port Talbot. But today, with the pits closed and 40 per cent unemployed, the village is close to despair. In an eloquent film from BBC Wales, the people of Glyncorrwg talk about their own sense of helplessness as the world's economic tide sweeps past them, leaving their traditional industry derelict, their own destiny stranded. What is our response-and what should be our responsibility to Glyncorrwg's fate and the plight of Britain's three million unemployed?
DAVID JESSEL counts the human cost of economic forces with Professor Brian Griffiths - economist, monetarist, Christian and Welshman.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
