: Money at Work: Business as Usual?

While bombs explode, Northern Ireland has been trying to run business as usual - or even better than usual. Like all remote regions, Ulster has an economic problem: old industries are running down - new industries need investment from outside. The Government have offered tempting bait - up to 70 per cent of the first cost of creating factories in Northern Ireland. And it has worked - with new plant Ulster's industrial production is growing at twice Britain's rate.
But is that enough for Ulster, or, with subsidies of £200 a head for every man, woman and child, is it too much for the taxpayer?

: World Cinema: Jean Vigo

A short season featuring films of Jean Vigo, one of the most brilliant and revolutionary directors in film history.

A Propos de Nice
Vigo's first film is a portrait of the city of Nice, its people, its casino, its carnival - and its graveyards. The young director was an admirer of early Soviet film-making and its technique of 'Kino-Eye.' His camera restlessly explores Nice, 'a city of pleasure, haunted by death.'

Zero de Conduite
Based largely on Vigo's own experiences as a pupil in two provincial boarding schools. Zero de Conduite remains a definitive statement on school life and the nature of authority. By turns a hilarious satire and a bitter indictment of the school system, the film has been the subject of controversy since it was released (and immediately banned) in France 40 years ago. Its unique quality of dreamlike fantasy has influenced countless directors.

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.

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.
