: Living with the Enemy

Machiavelli for Parents and Teenagers. This week, the series that looks at adolescent life from both sides of the battlefield examines the use of fear in family negotiations.
The programme examines how problems can escalate out of proportion. Can a teenager really get kicked out of a home because of a row over a haircut?
What should parents do when they discover that their teenage son has brought a pornographic magazine into the house?
In the studio, actors portray a family scene which leads to the typical teenager door-slam.
Psychologist John Heron uses this argument to get a group of parents and teenagers to discover a different approach to family power struggles.

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.
