Written by RAY CAMERON
BARRY CRYER and KENNY EVERETT
Hi! Kenny Everett here with a personal message to all you out there in viewing land! Now, I don't want to prejudice you in any way about tonight's show but please remember I love animals and children and I have mortgaged my house and my wife so that you can see tonight's show in colour. The BBC thought black and white was more me but I fought them to the last bribe. So why not watch me - gentleman, scholar and all round good egg— tonight. (Do you think they'll swallow that?)

: The Paras: Wings

The fifth of seven programmes.
Written and presented by Glyn Worsnip
At last, the surviving members of 480 Platoon move on to parachuting. Only 17 of the original 41 are left. RAF instructors take over from the Army and introduce a world of new skills and drills, exits, drift, twists, landings, coping with them must become second nature. The recruits experience the 'fan', the 'tower', the 'knacker-cracker '. Soon they are ready for their first jump from a balloon cage 800 feet above RAF Hullavington. 'Just like stepping off a pavement,' says an instructor.
But that's not how 480 Platoon see it. One of them refuses...
As the parachuting continues news comes from the Falklands. 2 and 3 Para are taking casualties. 480 Platoon, their training still incomplete, are put on 24-hour standby as reinforcements...

: The Richard Dimbleby Lecture

Sir Peter Parker , Chairman of the British Railways Board, gives the 11th in this series of annual lectures before an invited audience at the Royal Society of Arts in London.
Missing Our Connections
Tonight SIR PETER PARKER examines the relationship between
Government, Industry and Democracy and finds that we are ' missing our connections'.
He analyses Britain's industrial decline and describes the damage the politics of our democracy can cause to the sensible development of industrial policy.
He sees dangers to democracy in industrial decline, the prospect of a divided people and the creation of two nations.
He remains an optimist and produces his own ideas of how Britain could once again achieve industrial health.
Introduced by George Howard , Chairman of the BBC
Director pieter morpurco Producer JEREMY BENNErr

: Ten Million People

Five programmes on Britain's elderly population.
2: An Ageing Nation
The over-60s in Britain are now nearly a fifth of the whole population. In the second of five personal views, Eric Midwinter , Director of the Centre for Policy on Ageing, considers how and why this change in the structure of the population has taken place. He argues that the idea of a fixed retirement age has ' institutionalised ' old age. People are varied, but the rules governing retirement are rigid.'

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.
