Tonight from BBC West: Factory and Family
Six hundred people who make steering gear parts at a West Country factory in Clevedon work for one of the world's largest multi-national companies, yet are still encouraged to consider themselves members of one large family.
Today this approach to industrial relations may seem old-fashioned and paternal, but the company has an enviable strike-free record coupled with increased productivity and profits.

The Self-help Show
A fortnightly look at community action presented by Ian Breach an Ann Hunter Reclaim The Night
In Britain today women can't walk alone at night without fear. An estimated 11,000 are raped every year-but not just on the streets; many are raped in the ' safety' of their own homes. In a growing number of cities there's someone to turn to - women are organising to give help and advice, like at the Leeds Rape Crisis Centre. They talk to us about what they're trying to do and why. And the Belt & Braces Band add some music. Designed for Living?
It's not just on old dilapidated housing estates that conditions can be unbearable. Even tenants in brand-new homes are suffering from design faults. Thousands are now enduring life in damp, ill-ventilated rooms. We'll be reporting from two estates in Scotland where tenants have formed campaigns to get something done and take on the local authorities.

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.
