Bus Stop Holiday
Singing ' Ten men went to mow' and other songs, 33 children went on holiday in a bus. They started from Deptford Adventure Play-ground and they were mostly from families in temporary accommodation around the play-ground - homeless families and families between homes. Teachers and youth leaders started the ' Noah's Ark Children's Venture ' to take groups of deprived children to a house in Norfolk for a week's holiday - swimming, sailing, camping and jumping about on a friendly farmer's haystack. Back home, one mother said, ' I think it's a marvellous idea. They've got the freedom of almost everything they can think of; and it gives me freedom as well to sort my own mind out at the same time.'

: Horizon

The Three Chord Trick
In England an average of 19 new records are issued every day. In the USA the record industry is worth two billion dollars. What is it about music that appeals to almost everyone everywhere?
Using examples from the Beatles to Bushmen, from the Eskimos to Bach, tonight's Horizon looks at the factors, physical, psychological and social, that make up the magic of music.
Just how far can we succumb to the influence of music? The programme examines the work of the Muzak Corporation of the USA, whose carefully programmed product could be moving on from the supermarkets and restaurants of today to the schools and colleges of tomorrow.

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.
