Tonight:
The Overcrowded Profession
The dream: the world of first nights, champagne, the roar of success.
The reality: too often, hours waiting by the phone for calls that never come.
10,000 actors and actresses are out of work - two out of every three. In an Equity report published last month it was revealed that even if only half of them draw unemployment benefit it costs the country E2 million a year. And Equity believes that control over entry into the profession, is, at least part of, the answer. Every year nearly 200 drama schools turn out more than 1,000 hopefuls to try and fill 400 jobs. Most will be lucky if they earn even a meagre living; most will achieve only disillusion and heart-break.
With three drama schools, actors and actresses, and leaders of the profession like John Neville and Hattie Jacques , we look tonight at the overcrowded profession.

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.
