: Roots of England: 3: St Just-in-Penwith

A series of six films about English communities where the past is still strongly reflected in the present.
Streams of summer visitors to the western tip of England take in the spectacular coastal scenery, but few linger in the granite villages of this old tin-mining community.
Brian Trueman discovers that the local tin mine is expanding. But optimism is tempered by memories of a harsh past, as well as by the young who question the area's priorities for the future.
It is the celtic mixture of pagan and Christian in the midsummer celebrations that underlines the firm local view that 'this is Cornwall, not England'.

: Horizon

Voices from Silent Hands
Imagine being born into a world without sound - cut off from the noises of life, from music, bird-song and laughter. But worst of all, cut off from the sound of human voices.
One in a thousand children in Britain are born into just such a bewildering world. They are the children born profoundly deaf. For them, the spoken language we all take for granted is a foreign language which has to be learned by watching lip-patterns.
As an alternative to the daily struggle with English, many adult deaf choose a second language-one which uses handshapes and space instead of words and sounds. It's a rich and subtle language with its own grammar in space. Yet it's the subject of bitter controversy among teachers of the deaf, and banned in most schools. Some see it as a barrier to learning English - others as a vital first step. It is known as British Sign Language.

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.

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