This week 3,000 men and women will be awarded degrees by the Open University. Most of them have full-time jobs and many were early school-leavers with no qualifications. A railwayman, a comedian, a housewife and a shop-steward seem unlikely undergraduates.
Jim Hopkinson is a 53-year-old builder's labourer reading for a Humanities degree at the OU. 'I used to go to work, come home, watch TV. But I found there were a lot of things, especially on BBC2, that were going past me.' He plans to stay at his present job after he's got his BA.
This programme looks closely at what has been described as the greatest advance in British Education for 100 years. It asks why so few people know anything about it. What has the OU achieved? And just how 'open' is it to those who have never passed an exam in their lives?
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.
