Fair Shares?
Poverty in Britain today has reached crisis proportions. About one in seven children is being brought up on Supplementary Benefit - that means
11.30p a day to meet all the normal needs of a 10-year-old.
Meanwhile, the gap between rich and poor is growing; tax-cuts for the top tax payer, benefit cuts for the poor.
Child Poverty Action Group looks at a society where five per cent of the population still own nearly half the wealth, to find out who gets the benefit and who pays the price.

: Sailor: 10: Back Home

A frank account in 11 parts of life on the ocean wave in one of Her Majesty's ships.
When the sailor changes from his bell-bottoms to his jeans, his psyche changes too. Gone is the rover, to be replaced by domesticated man.
Ark is docked and lifeless as its crew disperses into the lap of families ashore, the Fleet Chief, Tom Wilkinson, scourge of ratings, to a loyal dog and a loving wife, Captain Graham - man of decision - to the minutiae of life in his Surrey village, and Leading Seaman 'Twinkle' Powell - heart-throb of the Spanish Main- to his mother, whom he festoons with gifts. Only those without families do not change, carrying on the enduring and endearing traditions and pursuits of the sailor.

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? Heathers
Heathers can provide a garden with colour all the year round. But the plants which are native to Europe form just part of a much larger family whose home is in southern Africa.

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.
