2: I Know I am a Supervisor - But What Do I Do?
Becoming a supervisor is not just getting a new job description; what counts is what you find yourself doing. Crucial to this is a clear understanding with your boss as to what your role should be. This programme looks at how a number of supervisors have worked, with their bosses, towards clearer understanding of their job.

: Hindsight

In 1974 the whole of local government in England and Wales, outside London, was reorganised. How is it viewed now, by a man who played a vital part in the events leading up to that reorganisation? Eric Robson asks Lord Redcliffe-Maud, who chaired the Royal Commission on Local Government, whether he has any regrets about the way things have turned out. With hindsight, does he still believe in big local councils? Did the public response to boundary changes surprise him, and are the new councils really that much better than the old ones?

: A Barrage of Questions

The tides of the Severn Estuary are the highest in Europe. Their vast energy could be harnessed to generate a tenth of the country's electricity by the end of the century. But it would mean building a ten-mile dam across the estuary at a cost of £5,500-million. Is it worth it? And what about the far-reaching effects on the environment?
After two years' deliberation the Government's official Severn Barrage Committee is publishing its findings. In an exclusive preview, reporter John Norman examines the committee's conclusions and asks: should the Severn Barrage be built?

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.
