1: The Toolmaker
' Many people don' know what an edge tool's really for. They think it's anybody's job to make such a thing. Well it's not.'
(HAROLD POUND, Edge toolmaker)
HAROLD POUND works in a tiny forge in central London and has been in business as a toolmaker for over 60 years. Using an anvil made in 1784 and a lifetime of expert judgment, he makes with astonishing precision tools which have kept others in business, from sculptors and masons to woodcarvers and roadmen.

: Their World

Animal Senses
Bees use their eyes to find flowers whereas flies find food by tasting it with their feet ... a fly can take off in one-tenth of a second but a mantis can catch it in one twenty-fifth of a second.
Discovering how animal sense organs function is important, for not only are they often superior to our own but they are the guides for the behaviour of the animals themselves.

The Immigrant Doctors
A patient admitted to a British hospital is almost certain to be treated at some stage by an immigrant doctor. There are now about 9,000 overseas doctors working in the National Health Service and they make up over a third of the staff in our hospitals. They fill the gap left by many British-trained doctors who practise abroad.
But is the style and standard of their previous training suited to treating patients here? And are the overseas doctors themselves getting the specialist training in medicine for which they have come to this country? Narrator PAUL VAUGHAN
Not what the doctor ordered; pp 10, 13


Narrator: Paul Vaughan

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.
