: One Pair of Eyes

Danger-Women at Work! warns Shirley Conran in tonight's programme in this series of highly personal films
Can a woman look after her husband, her children, and her job without one of the three suffering? shirley CONRAN, designer and journalist, thinks not.
Our man-orientated society, she says, imposes an impossible multiple role on a working mother. This is why so many marriages break up and so many women break down; why the basic institution of marriage itself is going out of fashion for the young. Among others, Shirley Conran talks to:
Mary Quant , Katharine Whitehorn Drusilla Beyfus
Dame Joan Vickers Viscount Weymouth and Jackie Stewart

: Review

The weekly arts magazine presented by James Mossman
Arthur Dooley , sculptor, Roman Catholic and card-carrying Communist, has recently opened a permanent exhibition of his work in the converted pub in Liverpool where he lives. Next to the Dooleys are paintings by the aggressively left - wing Worker
Artists' Association. ' ... I think it's up to the artist to bring about change. That's the role of the artist, to be political. I think everything's political.'
The Battle of Shrivings is a new play by Peter Shaffer starring John Gielgud , Patrick Magee , and Wendy Hiller. Constructed on an epic scale, it opened in London on Thursday, directed by Peter Hall. Peter Shaffer talks about his work and world.

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.
