: Public School: 5: You're the Chiefs - the others are the Indians

A series of ten documentary films set in one of Britain's top boarding schools for boys.
There are only two ways of meeting Radley College's school fees. You either pay for it all yourself, or you get someone else to pay it for you. For if boy is exceptionally gifted, the College will give him a scholarship, worth full fees, or a part thereof. Accordingly, parents who cannot afford £3,000 per annum attend to their sons brains, voices and personalities before sending them off on the Public School circuit, finely honed to catch the eye of academic and music staffs alike.
In this film, the Precentor of Radley Anthony Dowlen, trawls for talent in a shoal of prep-school boys, who are competing for music scholarships worth £20,000.


Precentor of Radley: Anthony Dowlen

' Valiant, wrathful, utterly pagan people' is how the Vikings were described by one of their Irish victims.

In tonight's outside broadcast, Magnus Magnusson visits the exhibition in the company of Dr
David Wilson, Director of the British Museum, and originator of this unique display of Viking life and times.

This evening: Centre of Unemployment presented by Newcastle Trades Council Centre for the Unemployed
'Today in Britain more than 1,300,000 people are unemployed. In Newcastle, ten per cent of the working population are without a job. Are the unemployed "work shy"? Are they scrounging off the state?

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.
