A Clan Revolution
Education is the next priority in Margaret Thatcher 's cultural revolution. State education is poised for its most radical change since the war. There will be more emphasis on 'the three Rs', seven-year-olds may be tested, and parents and governors can run their schools. Critics say it will bring back Mr Gradgrind 's classroom chants - and sharpen divisions between rich and poor. Mrs Thatcher says standards will rise and class barriers be broken down. John Ware has talked to the architects of the policy that the Prime Minister hopes will lead to 'a class revolution'.

: Film 87

Barry Norman presents his personal review of the week's cinema releases.
Roxanne is a comedy starring the underrated Steve Martin , who plays a fire chief with an unfortunately large nose. He expresses his love for Daryl Hannah in letters which she believes are written by a more handsome man. Maurice is the latest production from Merchant
Ivory, who once again turn to E. M. Forster for inspiration. James Wilby , Hugh Grant and Rupert Graves play out the complex stages of Forster's own homosexual awakening.
Let's Hope It's a Girl is a charming family drama set in a large and dilapidated Italian country house.
A strong cast is headed by Liv Ullmann , Philippe Noiret and Catherine Deneuve Director DOMINIC BRIGSTOCKE Producer BRUCE THOMPSON

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.

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