Paul McDowell reports this week on: The Yips' and How to Cure Them
When a top tennis player hits a run of bad form, a striker keeps on missing goal, or a golfer that vital putt, they call it 'the yips'. That is when they bring in the man who coaches the mind. Director BEA BALLARD Editor ERIC ROWAN

: Omnibus: The Treble

The boy treble Aled Jones is said to have one of the finest voices ever recorded. His brilliant career began only 12 months ago, and it will come to an end quite suddenly at any moment now. For, ironically, the treble voice is at its finest just before it breaks.
This film retraces the heady events of the past year: the tough training in the local choir, Aled's 'discovery' by conductor Neville Marriner , and the torrent of television appearances, records and concerts that followed.
One nail-biting audition turns into the battle for the crown, as Aled competes against the other top-rated trebles of the day. The most exciting moment of all comes when he's invited to sing a duet with his greatest hero, Stuart Burrows.
Now at 14, Aled has to contemplate an uncertain future as nature takes its course. As he says,'After all, none of this would have happened if my voice had broken when most other boys' do.'

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.
