Last of the present series by ANTONY JAY and JONATHAN LYNN starring Paul Eddington Nigel Hawthorne Derek Fowlds in One of Us
MI5 drops a bombshell. The papers of a recently-deceased ex-head of MI5 show he was at one stage spying for
Russia. Worse still, he was investigated and cleared by an internal civil service committee of inquiry headed by Sir Humphrey Appleby.
The programme presents the battles that undoubtedly do take place in Whitehall between ministers and civil servants in a beautifully British manner.... the truth is far more disturbing than anything seen on the screen.

: Challenge 87 for the America's Cup

Keelhauled
Written and narrated by Ian Wooldridge
The current America's Cup battle in the heaving waters off Perth, Western Australia, is the most costly single event in sporting history. America's obsession to get it back, Australia's determination to cling on to it, and the efforts of five other nations, including Great
Britain, to sink them both - all adds up to a 200 million dollar challenge. And that's Just the cost of the boats, their sails and their crews. It is costing a further 100 million to stage the event. Why such passion about a boat race? In the first of three films that take an in-depth look at the America's Cup phenomenon, Ian Wooldridge returns to Newport, Rhode Island, and the New York Yacht Club to discover the stunning effect of that historic night in September 1983, when Australia prised the trophy out of America's keeping after 132 years.

Presented by William Woollard
Motivating people to improve their work and working life is a full-time job. Suggestion schemes, with financial rewards for good ideas, are highly thought of, but some firms believe that quality circles, which don't usually pay, are a better solution.
To what extent does money control the system?
Should workers be rewarded for good ideas or should it be part of the job?

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.
