' Now if I can't see what a customer wants, I'm in a bit of a nutter. It's a bit of a worry until
I get hold of a plane and a piece of wood, and then all is peace.'
(FREDERIK GANDOLFI , camera-maker)
The Kodak and the miniature camera brought photography into the realms of a popular art from the complex business of plate photography as practised so magnificently by the Victorians. Yet, even today, the fine hand-made plate camera is still the instrument of the professional and none finer or more desirable than the Gandolfi. In London FREDERIK and ARTHUR GANDOLFI still manufacture entirely by hand these splendid and much-valued instruments. Narrated by KENNETH HUDSON

: Festival 40: Gale is Dead

A series of outstanding and memorable programmes to mark 40 years of BBCtv
This Man Alive film, with reporter HAROLD WILLIAMSON , was one of the most highly-praised documentaries of recent years.
GALE was beautiful, intelligent, and-according to everyone who knew her -had much to offer and everything to live for. Aged 19, and a drug addict, she was found dead in a filthy basement of a house in Chelsea.
Man Alive first met her when making a programme about people who had been brought up in children's homes. What was apparent, even then, was her total loss of hope, her disbelief in any future. Now she is dead, the people who were in her life-her mother, her friends, and those who cared for her in and out of various institutions-examine the short and hopeless life of a girl whom many tried to help, but who in the end felt she belonged to no one. They ask: need she have died?

Jenny Barraclough remembers Gale is Dead
Gale is Dead, first seen in the Man Alive series in 1970, traced the tragic story of a 19-year-old girl who died from drug addiction. It won three awards at the Monte Carlo Festival. Its director Jenny Barraclough recalls:
'Gale is the subject of a documentary I made about children in Homes. Gale, who was then a drug addict in a very bad way, was suggested as an example of someone upon whom a Home had had an adverse effect. I was taken to see her in Charing Cross Hospital, where she had been taken after collapsing in the street, and we filmed a sequence in which she was visited by one of her teachers, Mrs Mary David. But Gale did not want to live and months later Mrs David rang to tell me of her death and to suggest that a documentary should be made about her'because so many young people are going the same way'. The programme had an enormous impact at the time and was, I think, a very positive influence. It was later used to recruit people to work in that field, a centre was started for young homeless because of it and a Parliamentary sub-committee was set up to look into the problem.'

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.
