: Brass Tacks

Eric Robson invites people to talk about issues directly concerning them.
In a Class of Their Own
In the last ten years, small village primary schools have been disappearing at the rate of one a week. Along with the local bus services, pubs and churches, they have been quietly shut down-often without any fuss from despondent villagers who see it as the last blow to the life of their community. But suddenly country people are no longer content to allow city-based officials a free hand to destroy the very heart of their villages. They have adopted the traditional urban tactics of protest with a speed and an eagerness that has taken many officials and politicians by surprise. In Cumbria, plans to review the future of small village primary schools have had to be withdrawn and reconsidered after running into a vigorous and determined campaign to stop further closures. Brass Tacks reports from the village of Uldale - population 180. Its 200-year-old school has 24 children and was selected for review by the Cumbrian education committee along with two other schools in the area. But the committee reckoned without the deep feelings of pride the people of Uldale feel for their school. In tonight's programme, the education policy-makers, who feel there may be a case for bigger and better rural schools, talk to the villagers of Uldale, and others who fear they may be destroying something which is both small and beautiful.

The Tichborne Affair starring
Hugh Keays-Byrne
The claim by a bankrupt Australian butcher to be Sir Roger Tich borne, missing heir to the Tichborne title and estates, led ultimately to one of the most famous British criminal trials of the 19th century. This intriguing drama recreates the twists and turns of the Tichborne Claimant's protracted legal battle with the outraged family.

: Multi-Racial Britain

Five public talks on race relations. 3: Asians in Britain:
Problem or Opportunity?
Dr Bhikhu Parekh , Senior Lecturer in Politics, University of Hull
DR PAREKH is chairman of an Indian youth association and a member of the Home Office Advisory Committee on Race Relations Research. He reviews the ways the first generation of Asian immigrants have adapted to life in Britain, and considers how the second generation - with their different expectations - may react to a sense of discrimination or insecurity in our society. He goes on to explore what contributions Asians can make, and are making, to the British way of life.

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.
