: Making a Bob or Two

Harold Creme , Market Trader
Harold Creme launched himself on the public with a flood of words he never believed himself capable of. His father decided to give up his stall and Harold, a diffident youth with a stammer, had either to talk or quit. He talked, and he has pattered on for 30 years, drawing crowds who come to laugh and sometimes stay to buy. He is a gambler who plays for small stakes in a casino and for large ones, by its very nature, in his daily work. Narrator DERYCK GUYLER
Film editor PETER GIBBS. Written and produced by DON HAWORTH. BBC Manchester

: Roll Your Own Revolution

A report by Laurie Taylor
Black Panthers , Hippies, Yippies, Anti-Vietnam War resisters, Women's Liberationists, even the Grateful Dead and Dylan. The groups who came together in search of a second American revolution in the 1960s hardly sound like orthodox revolutionaries. And neither was there anything conventional about their tactics of sit-ins, mass marches,
' trashing ', acid freak-outs ' and ' be-ins '.
Ten years later, it's fashionable to regard much of this movement as having been ineffective and self-indulgent - it was a revolution that never happened. But LAURIE TAYLOR argues that this unlikely combination of people and events helped to change the face of America. It finally ended the Mc-Carthyite cold war era, helped to undermine the American war in Vietnam and fashioned a new life-style for half the Western world.
Roll Your Own Revolution is the story of how one place-the University of California at Berkeley - came to act as a forum for the whole movement.

: Man Alive

Will the Baby Be All Right?
Britain has one of the highest infant mortality rates in Western Europe and more of our babies are damaged at birth, or in the womb, than in any comparable western country. Why? It's not because we're behind in technology-one city with a superbly equipped antenatal clinic also has one of the country's worst infant mortality records. It's because the mothers who are most at risk-whose babies may be born dead, or handicapped - are, more often than not, the ones who are not yet being reached by the maternity services. As Man Alive discovers, many mothers are not being reached because they feel intimidated by a system that can treat pregnant women as though they were sick children, that can rob them of dignity, and deny them choice.
A look at the way our maternity service works, and fails to work, with opinions from doctors, midwives, administrators and most important of all - mothers.

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.
