Today Dennis Skllllcorn meets Monica Coleman , a self-taught artist who found that the influence of the forest inspired her to start painting. With her old dog Cindy as her only companion she seeks out locations where she can spend a tranquil day, preferably where a lazy stream wanders beneath overhanging birch trees. Dennis met Monica at Moyles Court, near Fordingbridge and nearby he found Ronald Hayward busy thatching an old cottage. Ronald is carrying on a family tradition that was started by his great-grandfather and will continue through his own son, Brian. For the Haywards it's an old craft that will never die.

: The Flying Boats

The second of three programmes In the 1930s the world was opened up for airline passengers and the flying boat took pride of place in the development of new routes. First was the largest aircraft in the world, the huge 12-engined German Dornier flying boat, soon to be followed by the graceful Empire flying boats of Imperial Airways reaching out to Africa, the Far East and Australia.
David Lomax continues the story of the flying boats and those who flew in them until 1939 when the transatlantic service was started, only to be sharply interrupted by war -when the flying boat had a new role to play.

: Secrets

In the UK a tangle of more than 80 laws prevents officials from releasing information to the public.
In State Secrets Ed Boyle follows the trail of a confidential ' Think Tank' report from its leak somewhere in Whitehall, via Stockholm and Amsterdam, back to a public library shelf in London. Its contents could affect the welfare of all of us, so are those who passed the brown paper parcel along its way criminals or men of conscience?
Then he visits a Yorkshire couple who believe that their neighbour - a giant chemical plant-is endangering their health and safety. Local officials know the facts because, they say, they need to, but don't the couple - indeed the public-have a 'right to know as well?
For 'it's not just laws that keep things hidden, it's tradition, the British way of doing things ... not so much the legislation more a way of life.
Series producer HUGH PURCELL Producer SUE BOURNE


Unknown: Ed Boyle
Editor: Michael Casey

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.
