: Ideas Unlimited

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 partofthejob?

: Domesday

Five programmes written and presented by Michael Wood 3: The Town
When the Normans conquered England in 1066, they inherited the richest land in Europe, a land already bustling with towns. Michael Wood journeys through England, and finds the Middle Ages in the shadow of St Paul's
Cathedral, London, in the great market at Salisbury and in the rich medieval wool towns of East Anglia. On the Welsh borders he discovers the Norman frontier towns that died and looks for the exuberant town life of Totnes in the 18th century, and Manchester in the 19th, a town then described as being 'as great a human exploit as Athens'. But towns rise and towns fall. Why? As the industrial dream of our great Victorian cities fades, is there a future for towns at all? Photography HENRY FARRAR Film editor AMANDA SMITH

: Songs of Praise: from Dumfries

Dumfries, the queen of the south of Scotland, is this year celebrating its octocentenary as a burgh. Cliff Michelmore pays a return visit to a town he first saw in 1940 on his way back from the war in France. He meets Andrew Ratnam, a Tamil Christian living in exile, from Sri Lanka. Wilson Ogilvie talks to Cliff about one of Dumfries's most celebrated citizens, Robert Burns. Local Christians join together in the Crichton Memorial Church with the Dumfries Girls Choir.

The Lord will come (Montrose); Jesus calls us (St Andrew); Jesus, good above all other (Quern Pastores Laudavere); The man in life wherever placed (Jackson); The Lord of heaven confess (St John): Gabriel's message; O Jesus, I have promised (Day of Rest); Tell out, my soul (Woodlands)

House of Cards
Many of us will buy our
Christmas with credit cards, and sort out the payments in the New Year. Credit is easy to get and it's on the increase. But for some people, credit is a nightmare. At worst, people lose their homes, their marriages and even their will to live.
Martin Young reports on the phenomenon of credit, and examines the morality of it. Ought lenders to give us so much credit? Or ought we to discipline ourselves? Film editor CHRIS LYSAGHT Researcher ALISON HILLIARD Producer PATTI STEEPLES Director CARRIE THOMAS

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.
