14: Men and Iron
The Lion Foundry pounds away at its daily tasks, all around it Kirkintilloch expands and modernises in a busy dormitory town for Glasgow. People ignore the noise. from the works and complain about the furnace fumes, mainly when the wind is in the east.
On these winter mornings a foundryman goes from lamplit streets into the dark foundry. It is his world apart - unknown to his wife and often forbidden to his son.

: The Magic of Dance

Reflections by Margot Fonteyn
Out in the Limelight, Home in the Rain with Rudolf Nureyev, Frederick Ashton, Michael Somes The Royal Ballet Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden conductor Ashley Lawrence solo pianist Michael Reeves
In her last programme Margot Fonteyn explores the dancer's life. The rigours of ballet class, the rehearsals and preparation: and finally the moment of judgment
when it's 'out in the limelight' and on with the performance.
Some of Margot Fonteyn's greatest moments on stage are relived in Salut d'Amour, which Frederick Ashton created for a Gala Birthday Tribute earlier this year. And the series ends with a complete performance of Ashton's ballet Marguerite and Armand, which was inspired by Dumas's tragic love story La Dame aux Camé́lias.
It is performed by the partnership for which it was created - Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev.
Favourite ballet music from this series is available on LP (REP 363) and cassette (ZCH 363) from record shops
Book same title). £11.75, from bookshops.

The Fat in the Fire
It is not true that fat adults in general eat more than thin ones. It is not true that an overfed' baby' will become a fat ; adult So why do some people stay thin' and others get fat?
In trying to answer this question, scientists have to date concentrated on-what we eat. Now attention is turningto the output side of the equation - the calories we burn off-,in the form of heat.
Very recent research suggests that special faf cells (brown fat) may, ironically, help control weight by burning up surplus food. So those born with a defeaive brown fat system would tend tolay down any surplus food as the more common white fat, and so beoome overweight. If the theory is correct, could drugs be. discovered to stimulate the brown fat cells and so help fat people get thin again? Narrator DR PHILIPJAMES Film editor JOHN LEÊ

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.
