Giving Britain a Facelift
Introduced by Melvyn Bragg
The first part of tonight's programme is devoted to artists and craftsmen who are brightening up our environment.
The Wall Painters
Blank brick walls are coming into their own; they're the sort of art you don't have to go to a museum for and can add a colourful new horizon to bricks and concrete.
The Sculptor in the Market Place Sculptor WILLIAM PYE 's new work took over nine months to build within a new London office block. What are the problems and responsibilities of the artist moving from his studio into the market place?
Keeping the Crafts Alive
Despite the renaissance of crafts, craftsmen need government help to survive. EDWIN MULLINS looks at the work of two craftsmen who have received state grants.
10.0 Julian Symons - ' 'Games'

In this film, extracts from some of Symons's award-winning books are enacted by VASS ANDERSON , YVONNE BALL , ELAINE BANHAM , LAON MAYBANKE and JULIETTE JAMES , with comments from JULIAN SYMONS himself and readings by JULIAN GLOVER.

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.
