: Move It

with Simon O'Brien and Fiona Lee Fraser
A sports programme with Olympic hopefuls in mind.
Windsurfing and white-water canoeing are two of the competitions in Seoul. With the new mini-windsurfing boards, youngsters in Dorset take to the water with gold-medal ambitions, as do the young canoeists competing on the foaming waters of Bala, in North Wales. And there are medal ambitions in the ring for the boxers of the Newco Repton Amateur
Boxing Club in the East End of London, who demonstrate why they opt for pugilism rather than a more peaceful pastime.

: Speaking to Each Other

For the last 40 years, BBC stations outside London have reflected the richness and diversity of provincial life. The newest of these, in Newcastle, was opened today by HRH The Prince of Wales. To celebrate the BBC's regional operation,
Ray Gosling explores the picture it has painted of Britain. With the help of people throughout the British Isles - and with examples from BBC regional programmes of the last years - he explores this tradition. It's a journey that brings documentary film-maker Philip Donnellan back to Wearside to recall the making of his classic study of shipbuilding, Sunderland Oak; that prompts young people in Northern Ireland and the Isle of Lewis to discuss their future; and asks playwrights Alan Plater and John Byrne to look again at the roots of their drama. It's an odyssey that introduces bhangra dancing, potholing, life in a tepee, the music of George Lloyd - and more! Cameraman RICHARD RANKEN Film editors DEREK INGLIS

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.
