: Six English Towns

A Pattern of Building Written and presented by Alec Clifton-Taylor
2: Richmond, North Yorkshire
' Shoes with heavy soles are what you'll need for seeing Richmond' says ALEC CLIFTON-TAYLOR , for the streets are like rocks, all local cobbles freely-gathered from the bed of the River Swale. Richmond was founded by the Normans 400 years before there was a Richmond in Surrey and their castle still dominates the town's clustered hillside homes. The town also has a delightful Georgian theatre, ' not perhaps the most comfortable in the country, but certainly the most authentic'. In a neighbouring park there is the unusual and rarely-seen Culloden Tower, built in 1747 in the Gothick style. Also in the Gothick style, but 100 years later, is Richmond's railway station, closed in 1963 but now a thriving garden centre.
Redoubtable Clifton-Taylor.... trenchant as usual. (SUNDAY TIMES) I guarantee you'll never look at a wall in quite the same way again. (OBSERVER) Executive producer BRUCE NORMAN Producer DENIS MORIARTY

: Brass Tacks

The First Division? Presented by Eric Robson
How good is your local school? For an increasing number of parents, not good enough. They think that today's comprehensives are too large, that the teaching should be more traditional, and that the teachers should think more about the pupils, and less about their own pay and promotion. Also, they claim, nobody seems to give a hoot about discipline. The supporters of the state system say that most of the current criticism is ill-informed, and have facts to prove it.
But nevertheless, some parents are voting with their feet. Brass Tacks reports from Stockton on Tees, Northampton and Leicester on the build-up of grass roots pressure for new fee-paying schools. Can the state system thrive on a freedom for some to opt out, or should these new schools be positively discouraged?
Film editor DOROTHEA GAZIDIS Producer JUDI CONNOR Editor ALAN DOBSON BBC Manchester
If you've got a point of view let's hear it. All participating BBC local radio stations will have a plione-in continuing the Brass Tacks debate (details on local radio pape of RADIO TIMES). Alternatively, write to Brass Tacks - Return Call, BBCtv, Oxford Road, Manchester M60 1SJ. (Return Call next week will report back on what you think)

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.

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