: Just the Job: 7: I don't want to sit at a desk all day

Ten programmes on career opportunities for young adults
with Paddy Feeny and Percy Walton, Secretary, Institute of Youth Employment Officers

Perhaps wanting to work out-of-doors is a natural reaction against the constriction of school life. In this programme three young horticulturists and two young men in the building industry tell us why they chose an outdoor job. Their careers and prospects are contrasted with the career pattern of somebody who has deliberately chosen an indoor job.

: Another Part of the Island

A remarkable story of Britain's smallest professional theatre
For two people as dedicated to the theatre as Barrie and Marianne Hesketh, the decision they took five years ago to go and live on the Isle of Mull might have seemed calculated to end their theatrical careers for good... Instead, in the thirty-four-seat converted cow-shed they call Mull Little Theatre they have found a new artist-freedom and have played Chekhov, Shaw, Strindberg, Ibsen, and Shakespeare to audiences totalling over two thousand by the end of last summer.
This film is the story of their enterprise and how they have adapted to their new surroundings.

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.
