: Follow the Rhine

with Johnny Morris
From its sources in the Swiss Alps down to the North Sea, he explores the towns and countryside around this great river. 2 : Basle to Baden-Baden
' Forget about the Rhine for a while and dawdle in this surprising scenery ... the beautiful Black Forest ... 2,000 square miles of perfect pictureland ... the whole of this landscape has been in deep freeze since about 1895 ... even the Rhine has to play second fiddle to this sort of scenery.'

: Work is a Four-letter Word

The fifth of a series of six programmes 65 -then what?
Every day almost a thousand workers retire. Suddenly the ordinary daily habits of a lifetime come to an end. Contact is lost with workmates.
Time hangs when there's still 40 hours a week to fill, and only pension money to spend. For many people retirement is the major crisis in their lives and few are prepared for it.

How does it hurt?
Six weeks ago a man called Louis Juneau went through a pioneering operation which gives him control over his own pain. To damp down the suffering that was ruining his life he turns a dial.
Most of us wish we could completely switch off the pains we feel in everyday life. Sometimes, like women you can see being hynotised to help deliver their babies, we can do exactly that. But the history of accidents that has befallen the remarkable family of pain-free children appearing in this programme shows pain is essential - as a danger signal. In pain clinics all over the country it's the long-lasting suffering that doctors need to control. A scientific detective story that begins with the question of why you rub an injury to make it better is now turning up clues to techniques which could realise the age-old dream - mastery over pain.

: It's Your Business

A Council in Session
From the Council House, Birmingham
Birmingham City Council helped make television history when it allowed outside broadcast cameras inside the Council Chamber to show local democracy at work. Local Authorities spend hundreds of millions of pounds on our behalf every year. The part-time, unpaid politicians set the pattern of much of our life. even more than Westminster does. but their work - and decision-making - goes unnoticed.

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.
