: The Family of Man: Teenagers

Must teenagers always quarrel with their parents? Do we do any harm by keeping them at school and prolonging their adolescence?
How do New Guinea boys go about chatting up the girls, and why do the girls of the Indian hills spend so much time singing and dancing? Are young people in this country more or less promiscuous than those in more exotic places?
The third programme to be repeated in The Family of Man series compares parents and teenagers, adolescent romance and the generation gap in five different places: Colne, Lancashire; Esher, Surrey; a village in the Indian Himalayas; another in northern Botswana; and a forest settlement in the highlands of New Guinea.

: International Rugby Special: Great Britain v New Zealand: The Second Test

At Lancaster Park, Christchurch, played by the British Lions on their tour of New Zealand.
With their history-making 9-3 win in the First Test two weeks ago - the first such victory for 40 years - the 1971 Lions established themselves as one of the greatest touring sides of all time. This result also provided them with the perfect platform for success in the four Test series, a record never yet achieved by any British touring side in New Zealand.
The highlights of this second intriguing Test encounter played at Christchurch last Saturday are introduced by Cliff Morgan.

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.
