: Look Stranger

Gunsmith Lindsay Tilney , 68, works in Beccles in a shop started by his grandfather in 1860; now his 18-year-old son Robert has left school and joined the business.
They spend 80 per cent of their spare time together because their interests are almost identical. In the evening, at an age when most men are happily settling down in front of the television with their slippers on, Lindsay is out shooting, walking, fishing or sailing. His energy is unflagging and even young Robert has a hard time keeping up with him.

A Film with No Words
Last autumn there was a day by The Bridge when very little happened. People come and go - and then the sun goes down on a scene that means something different to each of us. It could be anywhere. It depends how you look at it.

Tonight from BBC West The Factory
The last workers and machines from a Victorian factory. in the heart of Bristol have just been transferred to the most modern tobacco processing plant in Europe on the outskirts of the city. The move raised questions central to Britain's industrial future. Consultation or confrontation? Automation or job preservation? Diversification or specialisation? This film shows how the management and workers of one factory found answers that changed their lives. Narrated by JEREMY JAMES

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
