: The Clothes Show Graduate Fashion Week

The fashion industry is Britain's fourth highest earner of foreign currency and its students are among the best in the world.
Alas, few of them go on to work in this country.
"We have something like colleges in Britain offering fashion training compared to 23 In Italy, 72 in France and 58 in Germany," says executive producer, Roger Casstles. "But there are not enough jobs to go round and until the fashion industry starts to invest more in the young talent of this country, many of these highly-talented young designers will continue to move to continental Europe to find work."
This special edition of The
Clothes Show is devoted entirely to Graduate Fashion
Week where 3,000 students will showcase their talents, 750 of them putting on possibly their first and for many their last catwalk shows. Jeff Banks , Caryn Franklin and Brenda Emmanus watch the shows, talk to the students about their work, and ask established designers how more can be done to employ young talent.

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.

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.
