: Public School - the Update

In the first programme of the series the headmaster told the new pupils that they came to Radley to learn the 'right habits for life'. Now, seven years after the series was filmed, discover if they did.
The children are now adults: the music scholar has become a sculptor, the revolutionary a city broker, the adolescent misfit sells fine art and the A-level candidate has joined the Royal Scots Dragoon
Guards. They talk frankly about their lives, the series and the school which they all have in common.

: The Richard Burton Drama Award

Richard Burton was undoubtedly one of this country's greatest stars. His love of writing, of language and especially of poetry is well known and this major competition to find a new play-writing talent - launched in conjunction with RADIO TIMES and the Royal
Shakespeare Company - is a fitting tribute to his memory. During a gala evening at the RSC's new Swan Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon, recently opened by HM The
Queen, Anna Ford announces the winner of the award, chosen from 1,500 entries. Joan Bakewell talks to the four judges - Richard's friend and colleague, John Hurt ; playwright Pam Gems ; director Ron Daniels ; and the RSC's literary manager Colin Chambers - about their choices. Extracts from I the shortlisted plays are performed by members of the RSC and among those presenting the prizes are Robert Hardy
Anthony Hopkins and Sally Burton.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
