: In at the Deep End

Rock Video Director
Paul Heiney has been a radio and television presenter for
12 years. Now he must master a very different world - behind the cameras. His target is to direct a video for a major rock star. 'I won't say a bad video can ruin a good song,' warns Top of the Pops producer Michael Hurll , 'but it could ruin a group.' Paul goes to the BBC's training studio to learn to direct a pop number. Film director Ken Russell helps him make a demonstration video which, Paul hopes, will convince Bananarama that he's got what it takes to make the promo for their new single 'A trick of the night'. It will mean directing a film crew of 30 all through the night and the film must be good enough to be shown on those all-important TV pop programmes. Film cameramen

: The 20th Century Remembered

by Len Murray with Geoffrey Goodman In the third of four programmes, Len Murray talks about his early days as General Secretary of the TUC during the Wilson and Callaghan governments of the 1970s. He gives his view on why Labour was defeated in 1979, after the disaster of the 'winter of discontent'. He admits frankly that the TUC was unprepared for
Mrs Thatcher 's new government - 'We didn't believe the policies they were peddling.... and we didn't believe that they did - that was our error.' He tells Geoffrey Goodman that the TUC's response - the Days of Action - was a total failure. Film cameraman DEREK BANKS Film sound DOUG MAWSON Film editor JON KENT Producers

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.
