: Horizon: Never Too Late to Learn

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?

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.

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.
