: Public School

A new series of ten films set in one of Britain's top boarding schools for boys.
2: Schoolmastering is Just Acting
D. F. ('Goldie') Goldsmith, MA (Oxon) and Sub-Warden of Radley is the scourge of the third XI and the ayatollah of the fourth form. He owes his success as coach and pedagogue to his distinctive and eccentric style of teaching - a mixture of abuse, raillery, mock-despair and the unexpected.
For 'Goldie' regulates his realm with a system of rewards and punishments based on cricket, the turf and the fortunes of Ipswich Town Football Club.
But in his 30th year at Radley, 'Goldie' takes stock of his position. Was a seat at the Warden's right hand to be the pinnacle of his career? He applies and is accepted as Headmaster of another school. It is the end of one of Radley's best-loved institutions.

: Man Alive

Investigates, Discovers, Questions This week: The Doctors' Code
Should parents of a girl of 15 be told that she asked to be put on the pill? Should a criminal who seeks help from a doctor be reported to the police? Should cancer patients be told they are being used in experiments? Should employers be shown the medical records of employees?
Every day doctors, nurses and administrators have to make difficult ethical decisions. In the past they have often jealously maintained that they are the only people qualified to make these judgments.
But now the British Medical Association has published an ' ethical-handbook' available to patients, and has invited Man Alive to debate these dilemmas with those who face them, and those who are affected by them. Nick Ross questions members of the profession and Harold Williamson talks to patients and their families.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
