: Grapevine

You can't do anything, can you? Presenter Jeni Barnett tries a song, there's a bit of dance - and the self-help show puts forward ideas for local action, Like the Devon villagers who pay no Parish rates but still have money to spend because the Parish Council owns the pub. And did you know that any elector can have a direct say in anything that changes local life - even cruise missiles?
We meet diesel engine makers in Cannock who lost their jobs, until they decided to run their own Srm. And women in Sunderiand who used local radio to express their ideas and share their experience of middle life.
For information, or if you have any ideas for the show, please write to Grapevine, BBCtv, Wood Lane, London W12 5QT.

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.
