: Six Sides of a Square: 5: The More We Are Together

One square in London-seventy houses, about 400 lives...
The square reveals moving contrasts between rich and poor, loved and lonely. Tonight's programme shows the several faces of old age - at one extreme Mrs. Beecroft, the queen of her family, still dominating seven sons, eight daughters, and her teeming grand-children - at the other Mrs. Lyons, disowned and neglected by her family.

"The BBC-2 feature 'Six Sides of a Square' has been consistently interesting and well-written, and the fifth programme in the series, 'The More We Are Together' was quite as good as the others... As usual there were quite objective reportings, sensitive commentary, and excellent camera work." (The Guardian)

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.
