"You've got big dreams. You want fame. Well fame costs, and right here's where you start paying ..." dance teacher Lydia Grant warns the students of New York's celebrated dream factory, the High School for the Performing Arts.
The school is invaded by a mediocre actor with a star's ego who needs help from the school with a charity show. Meanwhile Leroy is struggling to complete a term paper and in the process enlists the aid of a talented young tap-dancer who wants to learn Leroy's style of dancing.

A six-part exploration of university life today
3: The Triple Alliance
Three men in a boat - could one pull out the plug? Running Edinburgh University needs tact, diplomacy and some cunning. As the democratic process of meetings, meetings and more meetings trundles on, the three try to steer a straight course.
While economy cuts are biting deep, it is costing f54 a week for every baby in the students' day nursery. This is the emotive issue that erupts tonight. The Principal's direction is clear. Universities are for learning and the day nursery is an expensive luxury which must go. The Secretary, charged with the efficient running of the University, has exhausted alternatives and regretfully recommends closure. In the chair, the Rector, Liberal leader David Steel , finds the costs ' horrendous'. But the bulk of his electorate were student voters. It takes a triple alliance to find a solution.

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.
