: Chronicle

The Great Glow-Curve Mystery
A place called Glozel in France is the setting for what must be either the most extraordinary discovery in the history of archaeology - or a monstrous fraud. Weird pots and phallic idols and magic writings are the bones of contention between archaeologists who have declared for more than 40 years that Glozel is a modern fake and some physicists who have been saying for the past four years that everything they have tested with their ' glow-curve - dating method is at least 2,000 years old. Chronicle has been following the case since 1974 and reports tonight with a round-up of all the latest evidence on the unsolved mystery that still surrounds Glozel.

: The Man Alive Report

A Peculiarly English Disease Reporter Michael Dean
I graduated in 1972 and worked in France for four years. I felt that I should give Britain a second chance by returning five months ago. Unless the engineers' situation begins to change soon I shall return to the continent at the end of my contract. At least over there I'm invited to meet his daughter, not to mend his dishwasher.
A well-known Victorian engineer once stepped down from the carriage in which he was travelling to supervise the repair of a damaged wheel. When he climbed back up his fellow passengers all ignored him. By showing that he knew how things worked he'd shown that he was less than a gentleman.
His status-sensitive travelling companions were suffering from a peculiarly English disease that 100 years later is still with us. Even in 1978, if you want ' to be accepted' in England you must be seen to be doing the right kind of work-work that's as far removed as possible from the means of production.
All the evidence shows that not enough of our cleverest people are going into industry, the very place we need them. MICHAEL DEAN talks to a number of people who, quite independently, have been studying our strange and potentially fatal social disease.

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.
