: Man at Work: Moving Where the Jobs Are

'I don'y think it is fair to expect families to move to a new area just for the sake of a job. If things get more desperate here we'll have to go - but I wouldn't be happy about it' - Gateshead housewife.

Thousands remain out of work in areas like the North East while London and the new towns suffer labour shortages. But what snags have to be considered in deciding whether to move away in search of work and prospects?

: Johnny Morris in Mexico: 1: Merida, Chichen Itza, Oaxaca

Six films of a jaunt in the sun

The journey begins in the hottest part of the country - the Yukatan Peninsula in the Gulf of Mexico. From the town of Merida and the local seaside resort of Progresso Johnny explores the incredible Mayan pyramids and ruins at Chichen Itza. In the little mountain town of Oaxaca he tours the fascinating Zapotec Indian market where you can buy anything from a bruised banana to a living, bejewelled beetle brooch.

: Man Alive: Pot

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

This week: Pot
Two people on your bus to work every day may be criminals. And your teenage son or daughter, perhaps just starting at college, may be breaking the law or sharing rooms with someone who does. The crime? The possession or use of cannabis - better known as pot. These statistics are not dramatic journalists' headlines either; they're revealed in a government report. Two million people, in this country, have smoked pot.
With so many people flouting the law - it is perhaps surprising how little is really understood about pot. Is it bad for one's health, and in what way? Is it addictive? Will it lead to other drug usage? And is the present legislation satisfactory?
With Desmond Wilcox in the Man Alive studio tonight are those anxious to discuss the prejudices and the facts about pot.

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.
