Fourth of five documentaries on teenagers
4: The Volunteers
How responsible is the Younger Generation?
David Nabarro was seventeen when he went as a Community Service Volunteer to organise 400 volunteers in York. Like other young people of his age, he wanted a youthful adventure before going to University. There he joined Peter Harvey who was working in a mental hospital and laying the foundations of his own career as well as pioneering a branch of Community Service Volunteer activity. Laurel Barker devoted her whole energy for six weeks during her summer holidays to set up a play centre for 200 young children.
What sort of people are these young volunteers? What do they do? Why do they do it? This is the story of some of them in one city in Britain.

: WHO IS ...

Pierre Boulez
A new series of profiles on the life and work of artists of international stature
Written and directed by ROGER GRAEF
Pierre Boulez , the French composer-conductor now living in Germany, is considered one of the most potent influences in modern music. This film includes Boulez's eight-minute piece called Eclat,' a highly compressed study of tonal contrasts and specific effects, seen in detail but clearly explained so that a non-musical viewer can grasp it. The film also includes his public acciaim on the podium and backstage at London's Royal festival Hall, and at a dinner for Boulez and Isaac Stern

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.

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