: The Philpott File

Trevor Philpott reports on The Making of a Policeman:
The Bramshill Flyers
It's a cherished principle of our police service that every officer must start as an ordinary bobby on the beat. Normally promotion is slow and hard to win. But some way has to be found to attract bright brains into the police force, and to make sure that they are given the chance to reach positions of authority. There is just one way to leap up the ladder, one way by which a few carefully-selected young men can reach inspector's rank within four years of joining the force. Each year, out of 100,000 men in the UK forces, just 30 become ' Bramshill Flyers.'

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.
