: The Vet

A year in the life of the Exmoor veterinary surgeon Alec McGuinness
FREDDIE JONES narrates a documentary reflecting the changing moods of Somerset, and the daily dilemmas facing a busy vet. His practice covers 1,000 square miles, from the Bristol Channel spreading east to Taunton and south across Exmoor into Devon.
The film records a busy year that took the vet from Dunster to Dublin. Moorland farms and lonely lambing-barns contrast with steeplechasing, polo, fox-hunting and the bustle of the small-animal clinic.

: The Man Alive Report: Girls Behind Bars

The only borstal in Britain where girls are kept behind bars - Bullwood Hall -is tucked away in the Essex countryside. For the girls sentenced to time here, it's the end of the road. Every other form of treatment has failed. Crime amongst young girls has tripled in the past ten years so Bullwood must cope with a wide cross-section of offenders - violent and non-violent, normal and subnormal, teenage mothers, burglars and prostitutes.
Bullwood has many critics and, four years ago, the Younger Committee recommended it should close. It just wasn't suitable. All that's happened since is that the number of inmates has increased by 60 per cent.
John Pitman and a camera crew were allowed to film in Bullwood for seven days and to meet some of the girls who talked openly about their lives.

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.
