: Six English Towns

A Pattern of Building
Written and presented by Alec Clifton-Taylor
4: Stamford, Lincolnshire
For many, especially before the by-pass was built, Stamford was a grinding traffic-jam on the old Al as the road followed a tortuous dog-leg course through the middle of the town - a course determined to this day by the site of the ancient Danish burh. But this lovely town, full of fine buildings, was the first to be designated a Conservation Area under the Civic Amenities Act of 1967. It possesses five handsome churches, lovely houses splendid in carved ornament and detail, and roofs made of the famous stone slates from nearby Collyweston. There's also an excellent collection of civic regalia and just across the River Welland stands Burghley House, William Cecil 's prodigious mansion, set in a masterpiece of landscape designed by Capability Brown.
Stunning and imaginative camerawork.

: Bird Spot

with Tony Soper
The last of seven guides to birds The Gull Family
The star of Desert Island Discs has a reputation to live down. Far from being a seagull, a bird of the wide oceans, most gulls are coastal birds. Indeed, many have now come further inland to take advantage of man, feeding on rubbish tips and nesting on city rooftops.

: Brass Tacks

Teenage
Motorcyclists Presented by Eric Robson
' Before long we'll be zigzagging along the road avoiding all the bodies.'
The 18-year-old who said this stands 30 times more chance of being involved in an accident when he rides his motorbike, than if he drove a car. Over half of all motorcycle deaths are riders under the age of 20. How far is it possible to legislate against teenage enthusiasm? And should we even try?
As sales of mopeds and motorcycles reach record levels, and as dealers press for the age limit to be lowered to 15, Brass Tacks asks, ' Are we doing enough to reduce the thousands of deaths and injuries that motorcycles cause?'
Studio director PETER HAMILTON Producer JANE DRABBLE
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 phone-in continuing the Brass Tacks debate (details on local radio page of RADIO TIMES). Alternatively, write to Brass Tacks - Return Call, BBCtv, Oxford Road, Manchester M60 ISJ. (Return Call next Saturday 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.

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.
