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

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

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.

50s, you can navigate by issue.

is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
