: In the Making

A series of ten new films about arts and crafts in Britain today. 6: Paul Nicholls
' It's very easy to get a great deal of enthusiasm but to get anyone to actually fork over some cash for what you've made is another problem altogether.'
PAUL NICHOLLS is a young artist who is impossible to categorise. He trained as a textile designer but his main interest is in working in wood. He makes both decorative and functional objects. It doesnt occur to him when he's making anything whether he is called an artist or a craftsman: he regards art as one big activity.

: Man Alive

Investigates, Discovers, Questions What School Do You Go To?
Among the many splits and divisions in Northern Ireland is educational apartheid. It runs so deeply through schools that Catholic and Protestant children are rarely found under the same roof. Public opinion polls show that a majority of people want that changed - that they believe bringing children together right from the beginning in school might be a step towards eventual reconciliation and peace.
In this report, Jack Pizzey and a Man Alive film crew travel across the battered province asking who is against it And why? One parent talks of reprisals by her church when she refused to send her children to its school. Catholic and Protestant teenagers, who rarely meet, talk about what might happen if they did.
In an experiment in one town the two sides do meet and - even more extraordinary in Northern Ireland -they discuss the gap between them and how they might bridge it. Could this be a way forward?

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
