: Ten Years of Man Alive

This week: 1965-1967
After ten years and more than 400 programmes, Man Alive looks back, in a short season, at some of its more memorable moments in the last decade.
Desmond Wilcox comments and also explains how the new lightweight camera equipment available in 1965 enabled Man Alive to get away from the pundits to people - ordinary people. Neighbours who rowed with each other; the men who cheat their bumper-car customers at the fair; the election candidates who were a hundred per cent sure to lose; and Cousin Brucie the New York disc jockey who advised nine-year-olds on their sex problems - ten years ago.

: Gardeners' World

with Percy Thrower at Clacks Farm
In the vegetable garden, PERCY THROWER makes successional sowings of globe beetroot, stump rooted carrots, turnips, swede and lettuce.
At this time of the year, it is essential to use any spare ground available for the growing of later crops, or as the gardener would can them - ' catch crops.' This applies more to the South and Midlands than to the Northern areas, but even in these areas it is well worth the risk of sowing beetroot, carrots, salad onions, lettuce, radish and endives, and keeping a portion of the garden for autumn sown onions and spring cabbage to be sown next month. In the event of the soil being very dry, as it has been during the early part of the summer, watering along the drills before sowing the seed will hasten germination.

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.
