: The Money Programme

Strike Village
' Wherever you get a strike, you get bitterness creep in - and once you become enemies over a strike it's very difficult, when the strike is over, to resolve the position, because people will always remember the hardships they've had to suffer.'
So said the local union secretary in Clipstone, a Nottinghamshire mining village, the day the National Coal Strike began. By then The Money Programme's cameras had been in Clipstone for a month: they stayed for ten weeks more and recorded this unique portrait of both sides of an industrial community under pressure - men, managers, and their wives before, during, and after the strike.

: One Pair of Eyes

Tom Stoppard gives his views in this series of highly personal films.
Tom Stoppard Doesn'Know
' Almost everybody I know has firm opinions about almost everything. It's better to have halitosis than to have no opinion. The characteristic position I find myself in is one of cautious agreement with two incompatible points of view.'
Playwright Tom Stoppard conducts an idiosyncratic search for certainty in a film involving a peacock, the M4, the Department of Weights and Measures, and a Professor of Physics, and featuring: David De Keyser Geoff Hoyle , David Ryall
Producer MALCOLM BROWN Director MICHAEL HOULDEY

Colin Welland and Ian Wooldridge presenting Match of the Day from Wimbledon
The Lawn Tennis Championships
Highlights of the outstanding match on Ladies' Finals Day at the All England Club.
JACK KRAMER comments on the action, which is introduced by HARRY CARPENTER.
Casper the Enigma - or How To Influence People and Not Make Friends
Billy Casper , subject of this film, has a 15-year record of golfing consistency unrivalled even by Nicklaus and Trevino. Yet he remains uftloved by his public, a mystery to the Press. Casper-Mormon, do-gooder, golfer par excellence - has been regularly tipped to win the British Open, and has never done so. It will be the final irony if, comparatively unfancied, he does so next week.

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.
