: Children's Wardrobe

The last of ten programmes on making children's clothes Presented by ANN LADBURY Duffle Coat.
A warm coat can be a very expensive item to buy ready-made for children. Even experienced home dressmakers can be nervous of tackling a big project like a coat. However, making your own children's coats can cut costs dramatically. In this programme Ann Ladbury gives step-by-step help on making up a duffle coat from the pattern in the Children's Wardrobe book.
This unlined, hooded coat, designed by Sally Tuffin , is a classic and is also relatively simple to make. It can be made in a more dressy version with a collar to suit both boys and girls.

: Waterways of China

In China's long history, her waterways have been a source of great sorrow and great joy. Now that
.the mighty rivers have largely been tamed and floods no longer devastate the land, the waterways are, more than ever, the playgrounds, the arteries of trade and the artists' inspiration.

: Arena: Art and Design

Ralph Steadman
STEADMAN first came to fame in the 60s cartooning for Private Eye. Now he's an internationally recognised artist in the field of drawing, caricature and illustration, often vitriolic, sometimes surprisingly humane.
The whole of this edition of Arena is devoted to Steadman's work. We watch him creating, from start to finish, a colour illustration for The Cherrywood Canon, a children's anti-war story published this month. We visit his local pub where he caricatures the bemused regulars, and talk to him about his drawing techniques and his most celebrated work - including illustrations for Alice, and impressions of the Patty Hearst trial and the Watergate hearings.
The very model of a film about a contemporary artist. (SUNDAY TIMES) Producer MICHAEL Din

: Open Door

The programme in which the BBC hands over air time to the public. Tonight:
Canals
Imagine a country with no railways, bad roads and only horse-drawn vehicles. How would you move tons of coal, iron or clay up to 200 miles?
The 18th-century answer was canals. The Inland Waterways Association looks at what is happening to those canals today and wonders why we don't do as other nations are doing, and reduce the damage to town and country by using fewer lorries and moving more goods by water.
Made by the Inland Waterways Association (South Western Branch) with the help of the Community Programme Unit

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
