: Ten Years of Man Alive

This week: 1967-1968
The second in a short season of memorable moments from earlier programmes, introduced by Desmond Wilcox
In its pursuit of ordinary people, Man Alive quickly learned that there was no such thing. GILLIAN STRICKLAND discovered nudists near Jodrell Bank; JOHN PERCIVAL talked to a woman in love with her cat; ANGELA HUTH to a man who was terrified of rhubarb; JEANNE LA CHARD tackled the problems of mixed marriages and HAROLD WILLIAMSON reported on the dangers of fireworks in the hands of children - a shocking programme but one which caused a dramatic reduction in the number of fire-work accidents.

: Gardeners' World

with Percy Thrower at Clacks Farm
In the fruit garden PERCY THROWER and ARTHUR BiLLiTT look at the progress of the fruit and discuss summer pruning.
Now is the time to be busy with the secateurs in the fruit garden. Cordon, espalier and dwarf pyramid apples should be summer pruned to keep them in shape. Blackcurrant shoots which have fruited must be cut out, to encourage strong young fruiting growths for next year. As raspberries finish fruiting the old canes are cut to ground level and young new growths are removed from the base of the stools to prevent over-crowding. Plum trees must be inspected for signs of silver leaf disease and any affected branches cut out to prevent it spreading.

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.
