: Look, Stranger: Ski Fever

For half the year Don Rumbold works sheet metal in Bradford, Yorkshire, to pay for the other half of his life - skiing on Cairngorm in Scotland. He was in his mid-20s when he first saw a pair of skis - on a Bradford golf course. He asked to have a go and finished up in a bunker. Now, ten years later, he's a ski instructor.

Trevor Philpott reports on Four Corners of the Marketplace We call it the ' Common Market' but, according to the corner of it in which you have the luck to be born, your chances of wealth and happiness are going to be vastly different.
1: The Calcutta of Europe
Naples was once the Queen of the Mediterranean, the proud capital of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies. Now the city is so far gone in decay that it's hard to recognise as a European city at all.
It's the city of the street boss, the child labourer and the confidence man; the city which hankers after departed kings and believes both in the Evil Eye and miraculous saints.

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.
