: Job for the Boy

A likely comedy by Dennis Driscoll.
From the BBC's North of England studios

There is a persistent social distinction even today between the man in the white collar and the small bowler hat, with the polished shoes and the puttee-tight umbrella, and the shirt-sleeved mechanic with grease under his fingernails. It has nothing to do with earning capacity or brains or usefulness, but it is there, this prestige of the 'clean job', and it is part of the ambition of many parents among what used to be called the working class to see their sons elevated into, say, insurance offices or banks. Maggie Lomax in Dennis Driscoll's play is the anxious spokeswoman for these aspirations. She has seen her boy David win a scholarship to the university and graduate with a degree fitting him, she is confident, for a clean and respectable career-possibly at the Town Hall, which is evidently her ideal of cleanliness and respectability.
But David is of a new generation that has not inherited the old snobberies, and he comes home with the dismaying determination to take a technical post in a coalmine.

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.
