Six films of a jaunt in the sun 3: Taxco, Acapulco
Taxco is a picturesque silver-mining town half way between Mexico City and Acapulco. It is today almost as it was in the 18th century. In Acapulco Johnny explores the beaches, takes a trip in a glass-bottomed boat and watches the remarkable diving boys at the 150-foot Quebrada Cliff.

' From the Cradle to the Grave ' - Thirty Years On
In the middle of the Second World War Sir William Beveridge produced his blueprint for peace: a Welfare State ' from the cradle to the grave.' In this specially extended edition, Man Alive reviews the successes and failures of the Welfare State through two families. ERLEND and CLARE COPELEY-WILLIAMS live in an Essex farmhouse with their three children. They are middle-class and comfortably off. FRED and MURIEL WADSWORTH live in a Manchester council house with their two children. They are working-class and struggling to make ends meet.
JEREMY JAMES and a film team compare the families in four key areas: income, housing, education and health. In the studio DESMOND wilcox examines how much we have achieved - 30 years on. Producer IVOR DUNKERTON Editor ADAM CLAPHAM

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.
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.
