Jobs for the Girls
Why do only 25% of girls do any kind of job training after school? Is it conditioning, lack of opportunity, or both?

This week: In Whose Interest?
On the north coast of Anglesey, construction has already begun on a super-tanker oil terminal for Shell. It is a £50-million development which promises unexpected wealth, new jobs and financial security.
But there is a price to pay for this hope of a rosy future. The Anglesey Defence Action Group claim that the price is too high; that there is a grave risk of oil spillage on holiday beaches; that an area of outstanding beauty will be destroyed.
The oil men say the terminal is ' in the nation's interest '; that it is necessary to meet the increasing need for oil products in the Midlands and the North West.
Harold Williamson examines the arguments for both sides, and Desmond Wilcox chairs a town meeting with oil men, planners and the people of Anglesey.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
