: Open Space

where the public sets the agenda Tonight: Invisible Women
'The area of fear for women really opens up when you're over 40. Physically you can see that you're changing, yet you've got this set of images in your head that you don't match up to any more.'
Older women become virtually invisible in the media, except in a range of stereotypes such as 'granny' or 'mother-in-law', reflecting society's dismissal of older women as having little value.
This attitude is challenged in Open Space by a North London Older Women's Group, joined by comedienne Victoria Wood and educational photographer Jo Spence.
Made by a North London Women's Group with the help of the COMMUNITY PROGRAMME

: Geoffrey Smith's World of Flowers

The plants we grow in our gardens are some of the richest and most varied in the world, but very few of them are native to this country. So where do they come from? Who brought them? How have we changed them?
Geraniums and Pelargoniums
'One of the most under-rated plants' is how Geoffrey Smith describes this British native flower. Often it is confused with the pelargonium, a native of southern Africa, which is one of this country's most popular summer bedding plants.

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.
