: Six English Towns

A Pattern of Building
Written and presented by Alec Clifton-Taylor 5: Totnes, Devon
Totnes, in a fine landscape setting on the southern edge of Dartmoor, was founded by the Saxons close to an important crossing on the River Dart. What gives Totnes its special identity is slate, quarried locally, and hung vertically, often in decorative patterns on many of the old and originally timber-framed houses. Inside some of these houses there is a series of handsome plaster ceilings. Totnes also has, unusually for England, some covered shopping arcades known as ' 'piazzas' and an ancient Guildhall, and ' while it isn't quite one of the most beautiful of our small towns', says ALEC CLIFTON-TAYLOR, ' it is one Of the most distinctive and the preservation of its individuality is vital '.
A TV phenomenon. (TIME OUT) Exquisite series of painstakingly planned excursions. (BUILDING) Executive producer BRUCE NORMAN Producer DENIS MORIARTY

: Brass Tacks

Known to the Police Presented by Eric Robson
Criminal records should be records of persons convicted of crimes ... but increasingly police records encompass persons simply suspected of crime, those who stand bail for others or who are seen in their company, even people who go to the most innocuous of political meetings.
In a year when plans are being considered throughout the police service for transferring manual records on to computers, with their potential for faster and more precise access, Brass Tacks asks just where the lines should be drawn between the acceptable, the questionable, and the downright objectionable.
Film cameraman DAFYDD HOBSON Producer DAVID GEEN 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, writetoBrassTacks-ReturnCall. BBCtv, Oxford Road, Manchester M60 1SJ. (Return Call next Saturday will report back on uhat t/ou 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.
