: Just the Job: 8: Looking After People

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

There are always opportunities in the Health and Welfare Services for those people who want some degree of personal involvement with their work. Such people bring to the job a concern for others, and a warmth of personality which makes them valuable contributors in a crisis situation where they are asked to give help in resolving problems that others cannot solve on their own.

: The High Chaparral: Stinky Flanagan

The High Chaparral ...is the bid of a family seeking roots in the newly won West
...is the threat to the new settlers from Mexicans and Indians
...and spells adventure in the Arizona territory of 1870

A camel on the strength of the U.S. Cavalry is strange enough, but when the camel is in the charge of a highly unconventional Irishman the results are unpredictable, to say the least. Everyone at The High Chaparral becomes involved with this unusual pair, but none more than Buck.

: How They Dug The Victoria Line

The story of a secret world beneath the famous sights of London

For six years Londoners have caught glimpses of a new tube railway being built. This film reveals the inside story: the strange isolation of miners burrowing under a big city, how the steel umbrella went up over Oxford Circus during one August Bank Holiday weekend, what they did to a famous department store, and why they froze the ground at Tottenham in the hottest weeks of 1966. A record of perhaps the most complex tunnel engineering ever carried out under London.
The film ends with an inside look at the new automatic trains which give the driver hardly anything to do, automatic fare collection, two-way mirrors, and closed-circuit TV cameras monitoring the crowds.
A British Transport Film made in association with the BBC

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.
