The early evening magazine has a maritime flavour.
Duncan Gibbins and Marian Foster are the hosts when outside broadcast cameras visit the Royal Navy Air Station at Yeovilton, Somerset. Aircraft from a Second World War Swordfish to Concorde are featured in a tour of the Naval air museum, and among the guests is actor Michael Hordern , who served in the Fleet Air Arm at Yeovilton. Appropriately, the music comes from the Band of the Royal Marines.

: Cooperage

The Sweeney Cooperage manufactures wooden barrels in an assembly plant on False Creek in Vancouver. The machinery is ancient, and the methods of production are antiquated. Here, perhaps for the last time, the dying art of ' cooping ' is shown - at one time a trade without which no one thought of existing.

You Don't Know You're Born
' Everybody's more selfish, families aren't close any more ... I'd rather have lived 50 years ago than be my age now.'
Janice is just 18, but feels she's already facing a whole lifetime's problems on her own.
Along with nine others, she's thrown into a pioneering two-week scheme aimed at bringing her not only a job, but a sense of belonging. Two years on, has she found either?

Invitation Pairs Tournament First Semi-final
Ron Edkins and David Sheppard v Brian Duncan and Norman Fletcher
In this first semi-final, favourites BRIAN DUNCAN and NORMAN FLETCHER take on 'outsiders' RON EDKINS and DAVID SHEPPARD from the Midlands. On paper the favourites should win, but Edkins and Sheppard showed in the first quarter-final that they are in peak form, and they could produce a surprise win.

: Stiff Little Fingers and U2

In Concert in Belfast
For Stiff Little Fingers it was a 'home game'. Back to Belfast to play in front of the fans who had supported them from their early punk days in 1978. U2 are from Dublin. A polished and sophisticated rock band whose live performances are already becoming legendary within the music world.
Tonight's gig, recorded at Queen's University in Belfast, combines the sounds of SLF and U2 with the energy of an enthusiastic Irish crowd.

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.
