Brent Schools - Hard Left Rules
Ever since a head teacher was suspended on suspicion of having made a racist remark, the London Borough of Brent has been a major political football. The teacher - Maureen McGoldrick - had a proven anti-racist record. Labour leader Neil Kinnock fears that sort of action from hard-left councils like Brent could cost the party the next election. But, as Panorama reports, Brent is pursuing its radical anti-racist policy with renewed vigour.
Maureen McGoldrick is not the only teacher committed to multi-cultural education to have been investigated by a group of council officers.
Brent says they are education advisers. The critics call them the 'thought police'. Reporter John Ware Producer PETER CERESOLE Editor DAVID DICKINSON

: Tinniswood's North Country

It was 25 years ago that the novelist and television sitcom writer Peter Tinniswood first arrived in Sheffield as a young reporter. So began his love affair with the city on which he was to draw for so much of his fiction and fun about the Brandon family and Uncle Mort in the television series "I Didn't Know You Cared". The writer himself enters the fantasy world of the Brandons and, with two of his characters, travels back to the city of his imagination.

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.
