: That Monday Morning Feeling

with Harold Williamson
A series of three programmes 3: The Property Developer
ALEXANDER SKEAPING intended to become a harpsichordist. Instead he became involved in property development. He began with f8,000 and at one time his property value grew to £250,000. He works hard and feels he has contributed to Georgian London by refurbishing old houses. But Skeaping was accused of ' gentrification ' - doing up old houses for well-heeled tenants; reducing the amount of cheap rental accommodation. He was also accused of winkling.

We think (with respect) that the city dweller is very much in the dark as to the many aspects which include knowledge, ability, way of life, hours of work, climatic conditions, perks, tied or service houses, etc.'

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.
