: Secret Service

"Beingan ordinary
British consumer is not an agreeable experience, says Dylan Winter as he goes undercover to investigate how the British treat their customers in this new four-part series.
Five organisations agreed to the BBC secretly filming their staff in action, although they didn't know when the filming would take place. Afterwards staff and management commented on the results and these sessions are included in the programme.
Producer David Dawson-Pick says: "One thing our filming seems to have proved is that people in Britain are intrinsically nice. In most cases they try hard to help, but they are poorly managed and often understaffed."
In Counter Spy, the first programme, Winter finds out whether the staff of Burger King and Ansells pubs have the personal touch.

: Tomorrow's World

This week: a new one-way bullet-proof glass is tested on a firing range. The idea is that if, for example, a president's car comes under fire, bodyguards can shoot through the window, while the would-be assassin's bullets simply bounce off.

And Carmen Pryce meets British inventor Trevor Baylis, who has recently patented a clockwork radio for the developing world.

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.
