: Breakfast Time

Frank Bough Selina Scott and Nick Ross invite you to wake up with Britain's first breakfast television programme.
Every weekday morning in the Breakfast Time studio they talk to the stars and personalities making the day's news.
The programme will be relaxed and informal, but news both national and local, current affairs, sport, weather and traffic information will all be essential ingredients in the breakfast menu - which will be repeated regularly to fit in with your morning timetable. On every hour and half-hour Debbie Rix will bring you the news that has developed overnight.
At quarter-past and quarter-to the hour your own regional studios nationwide report the local news, traffic and weather for your area. The national weather comes regularly from Breakfast Time's own weatherman, Francis Wilson , who will make his forecast for the day with the help of advanced new animating colour satellite pictures. David Icke reports with the latest sports news and pictures.
Plus the regular Breakfast Time features: Diana Moran , 'The Green Goddess ', sets off on her mission to get Britain fit; Russell Grant , astrologer extraordinary, predicts the day ahead; and Chris Wilson contributes with his gossip column of the air. And this first week Britain at Breakfast, a series of live outside broadcasts which visit parts of Britain where the day's work has long since started. Timetable:

The Opren Scandal
Presented by Fred Emery 2: Selling the Product
Last week's Panorama showed how evidence of the serious side-effects of the new anti-arthritis drug, Opren, was suppressed or ignored even after people using it had begun to die. This week's investigation reveals how much money is at stake in the arthritis business and how hard-sales policies have dangerous side-effects of their own. Tom Mangold reports on the close relationships between drug companies and their most important customers - the doctors; on the inadequacies in the regulations that should protect patients from the conflict of interests that can arise.

: The Monday Film: Dog Day Afternoon

starring Al Pacino , John Cazale
On a torrid day in August 1972 three gunmen burst into a Brooklyn bank intent on a quick and easy robbery. But the heist goes wrong and the robbers are besieged in the bank with the employees as hostages.
In this gripping, funny, sometimes grotesque, true story, Al Pacino gives one of his best performances as the ringleader who staged the hold-up to finance a sex change operation for his male lover.

The second series of The Computer Programme.
The language most personal microcomputers understand is called BASIC and although different makes of machine use different 'dialects' of the language, the fundamental principles are the same on almost all machines.
Ian McNaught-Davis describes the three programming structures and then writes a simple program which could be used to help children practise their maths skills. Catherine Robins visits a school where young children are learning to program the computer in a simple way.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
