: Strangeways

A series of eight programmes 7: Borstal Boys
The Borstal Allocation Centre at Strangeways is a prison within a prison. It holds up to 500 young men and boys aged 15-21. In theory they should only stay a few days, but in practice they can find themselves inside for as long as three months.
Although segregated from the adults, this is a taste of real prison life for boys whose average reading age is 12, and whose mathematical ability is no better than that of a nine-year-old. Yet here they are, experiencing the realities of our obsolete and overcrowded prison system.
A recent parliamentary report has stated that the practice of keeping such young boys in a prison is a scandal. And Assistant Governor Frank Weigh asks, ' What kind of society is it that is producing these young criminals? '

: Grapevine

If your way of life and livelihood is under threat, how do you explain it to other people? Fishermen in Amble, Northumberland, decided to make a film. But isn't that too difficult for ordinary working men? Too ambitious? The result proved good enough to take to the European Parliament.
Jeni Barnett also brings you other examples of self help; the ' well woman' clinic in Manchester, which advises on health rather than illness. And meet Devonians whose factory is a ' waste saver ': it gets materials from a local tip and makes jobs for teenagers.
For information, or if you have any ideas for the show, please write to Grapevine, BBCtv, Wood Lane, London W12 8QT.

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.
