: The Right to Manage

An inquiry into worker participation.
Jim Murray is a Works Convenor -Chairman of the shop stewards at Vickers in Newcastle. This programme looks at his life style, his work, his interests and his goal - worker participation. He wants the men on the shop floor to have a greater say in the running of the company. Now it looks as though he may get just that. The Government is setting up a committee of inquiry to advise on industrial democracy and envisages trade union representatives on the boards of most companies in about two years.
What will participation mean for workers and management and what form will it take? Whatever its effects, it could radically transform the way that British industry is run. The Right to Manage looks at the conflicts in industry as seen through the eyes of union convenor JIM MURRAY and with union leaders, workers, managers and directors considers how worker participation may help to resolve those conflicts.

: The Secret World

Unknown to many human inhabitants of the metropolis, wild life flourishes within the vast built-up area of Greater London to an extent realised only by the observant student of nature.
In Charing Cross Road, a sparrow feeds its young; at a power station in Bow, a hedgehog prowls through the tangle of pipes. There's a badger nosing through domestic rubbish, and there's a kestrel with a nest in a ventilation shaft at the BBC. There are wild deer and there are wildfowl, fox cubs, owls and even a bird's nest at the bus stop.

: Open Door Forum: Unheard Voices

Tonight: Miners and their wives from North Gawber Colliery Miners' Welfare, near Barnsley, Yorkshire.
In this week of special Open Door programmes, groups of people - whose attitudes and ideas are not commonly given direct expression in the media - are invited to put forward their views on the state of the nation... or anything else they care to talk about.
In all Open Door programmes the public decides the content. Technical and creative help is provided by the Community Programme Unit of the BBC.

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.

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.
