: Inside Story: 4: The End of the Line

A series of eight contemporary documentaries.

In the telephone directory the entry reads Samaritans, The (Befriend the suicidal), followed by a number. And a million people call the Samaritans every year. Befriending the lonely, desperate, and suicidal requires more than simple sympathy. There are techniques to learn, refined and perfected since The Rev. Chad Varah founded the organisation in his study at St Stephen's, Walbrook, 25 years ago.
This documentary follows a group of volunteers who wish to become Samaritans. Over five weeks, in lectures and role-playing, they learn how to deal with the practical joker, and the obscene caller, but most of all the hundreds of thousands at the end of their tether - on the end of the line.

Balanchine Festival
Anthony Dowell introduces two ballets by SEORGE BALANCHINE danced by the New York City Ballet
Created in 1934 when Balanchine went to America, this ballet came to life in the classes of the School of American Ballet where Balanchine choreographed various sections to fit the number of pupils present. Set to TCHAIKOVSKY'S 'Serenade for Strings ', it captures perfectly the romantic and elegiac quality of the music. Soloists
Karin von Aroldingen, Susan Hendl Sara Leland , Kay Mazzo Jean-Pierre Bonnefous Peter Martins Episodes
Premiered in 1959, this ballet is in four movements to music by WEBERN. It is another example of Balanchine's understanding of the music he works with, his ability to reflect, almost to ' visualise ' the score. In contrast to the romantic Serenade, this is a work of Balanchine's modern classicism. Soloists
Sara Leland , Anthony Blum Karin von Aroldingen
Frank Ohman , Allegra Kent Bart Cook , Renee Estopinal David Richardson

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.
