: Times Remembered: Frank Lindley

Denis Tuohy talks to Frank Lindley

For nearly half a century Frank Lindley worked at a snuff factory in Sheffield. But by the time he signed on there at the age of 20 he reckons he had seen enough of the outside world to last a lifetime. During the Great War he served first in Egypt and later at the Somme. He enlisted again in 1918 for the almost forgotten north Russian campaign in which British forces were allied with the doomed White Russian cause.

: Man Alive: Men at Sea - Women Who Wait

Reporters Jeremy James, Jeanne La Chard, John Pitman, Desmond Wilcox, Harold Williamson

Men may go to sea for adventure and romance but the appeal doesn't usually last very long and the shipping world is worried about the wastage. One out of three merchant seamen leave the life within the first year and nine out of ten return ashore, for good, before they have served ten years. For some men, life at sea represents an escape from the rat race of shore life, or from domestic responsibility. And, behind a man's decision to leave shipping and return home, there is usually a wife.
At sea on two very different ships - an old passenger boat and a new container ship - seamen talk, to Harold Williamson and a Man Alive team, about their love - and hate - of life on board. And, back home, the wives have their say.

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.
