: Times Remembered

They have 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.

: Man Alive: Excuse me, your class is showing

Reporters Jim Douglas Henry, Jeremy James, Jeanne La Chard, Gillian Strickland, Desmond Wilcox, Harold Williamson

We are becoming, so we are told, a classless society. The class barriers are crumbling, or so they say, overwhelmed by the whizz kids, the pacesetters and the meritocrats. These days, a railway-man can marry a deb. How you do what you do, is more important than who your father was. That is what we're told. But what happens when a working class boy like Eric Parsloe becomes President of the Oxford Union? Or Mike D'Abo, after Harrow and Cambridge, chooses the world of pop instead of the Army. Or Diana Regler, born to a life of servants and tennis parties in Kenya, chooses instead to marry a fitter?
Any examination of class in Great Britain must be personal. The general rules are changing and there are a great many exceptions. But class consciousness is something you don't have to look far to find - as Jeremy James discovered when he looked for examples of those who have crossed, or tried to cross, the class barrier: and those who know their place and are happy to be there.

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.
