: Panorama: Good Enough for Your Child?

Presented by Richard Lindley
In London, one quarter of all fifth-formers are so fed up with school they don't even bother to go. Across the country, half the children who leave comprehensives at 16 do so with exam results that label them as failures. To counter this, but to the alarm of many teachers, the government is introducing a scheme which will take some children out of ordinary classes at 14 to teach them skills they'll need for work. It's called vocational education. Is it a sensible way of helping children to a better start in life, or a sinister scheme which will stamp them as second-class citizens even before they leave school? Is it good enough for your child?
Producer SALLY docams
Deputy editor TOM BOWER Editor George CAREY

: The Monday Film: Curse of the Black Widow

Tony Franclosa , Donna Mills
Hired by an attractive client to investigate the brutal murder of a friend, private detective Mark Higbie suspects that the murder is but one of several which the police are trying to cover up. Among the features of the killings is the fact that the victims are drained of blood. Also the bodies bear marks of a giant spider.... This contemporary thriller recalls some of the vintage horror movies of the 50s in its blend of drama and the bizarre.

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.

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.
