: Will Hay in My Learned Friend

with Claude Hulbert Mervyn Johns
In this film, the last in which the great comedian starred, Will Hay plays a shady, disbarred barrister on the list of potential victims for a revenge-crazy convict.
Grimshaw has vowed to kill everyone who helped send him to jail - and his first victim is the Judge. Hay and Claude Hulbert turn every situation into a mixture of comedy and black farce as they get involved in a bar fight, an inquest and a pantomime, before the climax in the House of Lords.

4: The Times Have Changed
There are no girls at Radley College - and 600 boys maturing fast. But these days girlfriends have come in from the cold, and schoolgirls are bussed in regularly to the College's dances-Scottish and disco.
If all else fails, there are pin-ups and exhausting afternoons on the river and rugger field.
In this film essay, three senior boys discuss openly the problems of living for most of the year in a male-dominated institution, and of the sexual tensions that arise.

Investigates, Discovers, Questions This week: The Jobs Riddle
Trains are cancelled because of staff shortages; manufacturers lose orders because of a lack of skilled workers.
Why is it, that with over one-and-a-quarter million people unemployed, there are still thousands of unfilled jobs up-and-down the country?
Is it that people won't or cant move from one region to another? Is it that there's a shortage of particular skills? Is it that employers and unions sometimes demand unnecessary skills? Is it that, for some, there is just not enough incentive to find a job? Can they get almost as much on the dole?
Jeremy James goes to one town, Mansfield, to seek answers to ' The Jobs Riddle '.

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.
