: The End of the Pier Show

A traditional show for a traditional resort - Cromer prides itself on mounting one of the few remaining old-style pier entertainments. The theatre, right on the end of the pier, is small; money is tight; the audience declines year by year, but ex-Folies Bergeres dancer
Bob Marlowe struggles against all odds to put a show together for the gala first night.
He can only afford three dancers, and they have to fit last season's costumes. The singers have to dance, comics to sing and at the top of the bill, brothers Gordon and Bunny Jay have to do everything to create the concert party feeling which will make a hit with the holidaymakers of north Norfolk.

Dramatic journeys in five people's lives with Desmond Wilcox Down to Earth
Second of two parts
We'll Take Good Care of You The men and women of the British Airways TriStar fleet took on the job of caring for 450 destitute children at an orphanage in Dhaka,
Bangladesh. Now they are fighting to save the children from eviction, trying to raise a minimum of E300,000 to build a new orphanage and to find a site for it.
There's a crisis nearly every day at the orphanage: bureaucracy to deal with, money to find.
Pat Kerr , the stewardess who started it all, finds herself at the front of an international campaign. It's a far cry from the normal glossy image of the men and women who earn their living at 35,000 feet in the passenger jets. Research JAN RIDDELL

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.
