: Inside Story The New Principal

Battersea Technology College in London is one of the roughest comprehensive schools in the country. The local council, Conservative flagship
Wandsworth, is the first council aiming to abolish the comprehensive system by introducing "aptitude selection" for all new entrants.
To ring the changes and sort out the staff (most have had to reapply for their own jobs), the council brought in a new principal specially head-hunted for the job. Inside Story has spent a year inside Battersea Tech following the new principal, Michael Clark , as he trys to turn this "sink" school into a success. "We are 4,382nd in the league tables - 18th from the bottom," says Clark. "In some ways it's very depressing. In other ways it is an interesting starting point. One can only get better."

: Sportsnight

Featuring European Football. It is a historic occasion at
Carrow Road, where Norwich City have their first-ever taste of European competition, highlights of which feature on tonight's programme. In spite of their lack of experience at this level, it would be a brave or foolhardy person to discount Mike Walker 's team - last season, after all, Norwich began the season unfancied and unfashionable, but they defied the odds to finish third in the Premier League. Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem provide a testing opposition tonight in the Uefa Cup first-round first-leg tie. Plus a comprehensive round-up of all the weekend's goal action from the Premiership and all the latest news on the major sports.

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.
