: The Space Between Words: 1: Work

Conflict takes over when communications break down in this series of five programmes about situations that depend on good communications - work, family, school, politics, even diplomacy. Everything is real, nothing was staged or repeated for the cameras.
A modern electronics factory in Dorset. A nice place to work, with intelligent, sympathetic people in management and the unions. But in two days the system virtually breaks down, with the factory on the brink of a strike when a seemingly well-meant management productivity scheme is seen as a threat to men's jobs. An accidental leak, the sudden arrival of management consultants forces management and unions to take up their positions. The programme follows both sides, their strategy, their thinking, their goals.

: The Assassin

Starring Fritz Hollenback as Georg Elser.
World Television Theatre: the last of three major dramatic presentations of real historic events.

On 8 November 1939 a bomb exploded in the Burgerbraukeller in Munich just 20 minutes after Hitler had left the building.
The Assassin tells the fascinating story of how, single-handed, Georg Elser planned this daring attempt on the Fuehrer's life which could have changed the course of 20th-century history.
The English language version of the award-winning German television production was specially prepared for tonight's presentation by the BBC.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
