: The Gentle Alliance

by Frances Rich
Adapted by Vivian A. Daniels
(See above)
(BBC recording)
(By arrangement with the Manchester Public Libraries Committee)

John Flash is a brilliant and rather quiet young man who looks on life with understanding rather than anger. "Every other person you meet", he points out, "is spending fifty percent of their waking life doing something they don't really enjoy". John himself has no intention of being pushed into a job he doesn't like: he has turned down twelve of them so far, and even the devoted friends with whom he shares a Bohemian life in a London boarding-house are beginning to suspect that for all his promise he may turn out to be a failure.
This play, the first by its twenty-seven year old author, was recently given its first performance by the Manchester Library Theatre, and it was booked for television before its opening night. It deals with the timeless problems of youth in the language and setting of today.

: Sea and Ships: 5: Dutch Inland Waterways

Introduced by Max Robertson with Bas Goedhart.

Holland depends on inland waterways more than any other European country. Behind the great dykes that keep out the sea, the country is intersected by a network of canals and rivers, linking the smallest villages with ocean ports.
Vessels of all descriptions use the canals, but especially famous are the barges, from the old sailing type to the huge new diesel freighters. This programme takes a look at the waterways of Holland and the vessels that use them.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
