Reporters Jeremy James, Jeanne La Chard, Denis Tuohy, Desmond Wilcox, Harold Williamson

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 or 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, schoolteachers. But in the end they may be powerless.

"...a sympathetic and heartrending study by Man Alive into the life and prospects of four juvenile delinquents in the East End." (Daily Telegraph)
"It was a sad programme, particularly poignant in that the boys seemed bright enough to take up adult excuses for their actions." (Daily Mail)

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.
