This week: Vince, Paul, Lawrence and Richard
Four boys aged between 11 and 14. The landmarks of their world are the lingering slums of yesterday, new blocks of flats that aren't being built quickly enough, the warehouses and docks along the river in London's East End. Already they have fallen foul of the law for truancy and stealing or both. They're in trouble and they're aware of it, but it hasn't dimmed the vitality and optimism of boyhood. There are people who care about them - probation officers, social workers, school teachers. But in the end they may be powerless.

Denis Tuohy has looked at the past and present of these boys and their families. Are they the products of their surroundings and what future will they have there?

: Yesterday's Witness: The Lifeboat That Wouldn't Give Up

It was October 1941 and the SA English Trader, aground on a sandbank, was being pounded to pieces by tremendous seas. Forty-four men were huddled on the bridge, and they saw a huge wave hit the approaching Cromer lifeboat, sweep half her crew overboard and come within inches of capsizing her. They knew then that they had little chance of being saved. But this was the legendary Cox'n Henry Blogg of the Cromer lifeboat - in the lifeboat that wouldn't give up.

Taking part the present coxswain of the Cromer lifeboat -'Shrimp' Davies, Dick Davies, Kathleen Davies, Rose Davies, 'Kelly' Harrison and one-time gunlayer of the English Trader - William Hickson.

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.
