: Inquiry:The Race for a Place

'We're losing some good young people; they're our greatest natural resource, and some of them are being lost for ever.' (HEADMASTER) ' It's been too easy for too many for too long. Cutting down means selection. And selection means quality.' (BUSINESSMAN)
Competition for a place at university or polytechnic has never been so fierce. Yet at the end of it all, a degree no longer guarantees a 'job. Tonight's Inquiry film focuses .on a group of school-leavers and :four recent graduates as they make their way through the higher education and job ' markets '.
In the studio Ludovic Kennedy asks policymakers, teachers and students: Are too many bright school-leavers missing out? Is higher education a right-or an economic need? What is the point of degrees -training to think, or training to do? Are we really wasting our greatest natural resource? Film reporter HAROLD WILLIAMSON

: Good Behaviour

by MOLLY KEANE , dramatised in three parts by HUGH LEONARD
At last Aroon has met Richard. He was everything she had expected from her brother Hubert's description. There was something special and ' men only' about them.
' Spoilers of girls' she thought happily. The Major wasn't as impressed, but then he was kept busy being entertained by Nod and Blink, the Crowhurst girls. Aroon found her father tired easily by these visits but that was probably due to his war wound. All in all life was good and Aroon had learnt the ' Charleston '.

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.
