Today's story is "Hilda and the Road Roller" by Jill Tomlinson


Presenter: Carol Chell
Presenter: Johnny Ball
Author (Hilda and the Road Roller): Jill Tomlinson

: Closedown

: Newsroom

with Peter Woods reporting the world tonight with the BBC's reporters and correspondents at home and abroad


Newsreader: Peter Woods

: Times Remembered

Treasured memories of other times - firm views about present times.
In the race for today few of us spare enough time to listen - even to learn - from people who also know about yesterday, as they talk to the Man Alive reporters.

: What Sort of World Do We Want?: 3: In Man's labour is his dignity and pride

A series of four films examining the problems and possibilities of our futures.

We hear a lot about 'job satisfaction.' But how many people's satisfaction is confined to their weekly pay packet and what spare time is left them when the factory whistle blows?
And with automation and the growth of ever-larger companies, do we increasingly feel just small cogs in an ever bigger machine - a machine over which we have no effective control?

'For most people, half the time they've been awake, they've been doing things other people told them to do, in order to meet plans other people have formed, so as to make other people more powerful or more important. How much freedom do most people get; how much development do they have?'

Ken Coates from the Institute for Workers' Control and four people from the Rolls Royce factory in Coventry ask some of the questions that underlie much of today's industrial unrest and say what they think are the pointers for the future.

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.
