Six programmes which trace the pattern of speech in Britain today. Introduced by Melvyn Bragg , with comments by Stanley Ellis , one of Britain's leading dialect experts. 4:Ey La
Scouse is one of Britain's liveliest urban ddalects, the result of the rich mingling of races and cultures which took place in Liverpool in the last century. But how far has Scouse survived the decline of Liverpool as a major sea port and trading city and how has the pop explosion of the 60s affected the language?

: Festival 40: L S. Lowry. RA

A series of outstanding and memorable programmes to mark 40 years of BBCtv
A film made 20 years ago about the distinguished Lancashire artist who died earlier this year. This was one of the first television films to show artists at work, and the very first to use tape-recording techniques to enable artists to speak their own commentaries.

Festival 40: Elgar
This film biography, written and directed by Ken Russell , marked the 100th edition of Monitor.
Behind the public image of pomp and circumstance lies the extraordinary story of the piano-tuner's son from Worcester who became the authentic voice of Edwardian England - ' he has reached the hearts of people ' - yet remained through all his public triumphs and private pains an enigmatic, powerful and mysterious figure.

: Inside Story

The fourth of seven programmes Miscarriage of Justice
In May 1973 two young men were convicted of arson. Each received a term of imprisonment. Two years later, on appeal, they were proclaimed innocent. This film shows how the whole system of justice miscarried by reconstructing the story as it passes through the hands of police, solicitors, barristers and the courts.
That the wrong was righted was partly due to coincidence, but mainly to the fact that one of the accused's father was a rich man, who could afford to employ an intelligent and tenacious private detective. This disturbing story comes in a year in which we have already read of Patrick Meehan , Peter Hain and George Davis.
Next week's Inside Story, Queen's Pardon', examines some of the issues raised when our legal processes fail.

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.
