John Bull 's Workshop by CORRELL! BARNETT
Filmed from the air this programme traces the rise of industry from early beginnings-the monk's forge of Kirkstall Abbey, the weaver's village of Worstead. The helicopter flies low over the 1969 landscapes of the Rhondda pit-heads, races alongside Lotus cars, hovers by a Harrier. Below it, Mary Quant girls leap for a photocall, and Princess Anne launches the then largest ship ever built in Britain.

... by children from abroad
During the summer, children from abroad bring us memories of the countries they call home.
They tell us, too, of the customs and the people in the foreign country where they live now-Great Britain.

This week: The Army Game
Everyone knows now that the Home Guard was affectionately known as ' Dad's Army '. Not so many know the Territorial Army as ' The Terriers '. Ex-National Servicemen joined to fulfil their reserve training obligations and some stayed on. Volunteers join because they like the idea of part-time military life. But the Territorial Army has always been a political ping-pong ball. In 1965 it was threatened with re-organisation and drastic pruning to save £20 million a year. But then came a reprieve. And in April last year a drive was started to recruit another 10,000 men. Today it has a new name - the Territorial and Army Volunteer Reserve - and a new look, with new weapons and a new job to do.
Man Alive looked at three units to find out what makes a quiet civilian family man want to fire guns and drive armoured cars for a fortnight a year and one evening a week. Do they feel part of a serious fighting force? Or, do they just play the army game?

Among the thousands of children rescued from concentration camps at the end of World War II is one small boy who has lost his identity, his nationality, even the power to speak.

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.
