: Open Space: Single Problem

Where the public sets the agenda
Britain's mounting housing crisis is creating a growing class of urban nomads, single people and childless couples who have no right to a home but cannot be classified legally as homeless.
The image of the homeless as winos or dossers has been shattered by a succession of public reports, yet local and central government continue to ignore the issue.
Single Problem looks at who the single homeless really are and the actions they are forced to take to cope with the pressures of insecurity.

: Commercial Breaks

Tim Bedford's Fast and Bumpy Ride
It's a great idea: modify a diesel engine to deliver twice the power - with dramatic reductions in noise and air pollution. The fuel, natural gas, is cheaper and seven times more abundant than petroleum. Tim Bedford is ahead of the world in developing its use: he must be on to a winner. Or is he?
Commercial Breaks follows his fortunes for nine months as he struggles to keep the project going. He hits problems: an American backer who wants to make money in Argentina; a bank that wants him to cut his overdraft; a gas board that won't sell him the liquid natural gas he urgently needs. So it's make or break, as Tim Bedford tells his workforce, 'Fasten your seatbelts for a fast and bumpy ride. It's going to be exciting!'

: Forty Minutes

... of documentary. A series of films portraying issues, institutions and individuals. Gigolo
Once he was simply paid to dance with women. As time went by he became a different sort of partner, rewarded in money or in kind to be a dashing companion, a good listener, or accomplished lover. This documentary explores the delicate interface between the well-heeled woman and the men who live by her largesse. Little Billy , aged 83. from Rochdale is one of the few survivors of the dancing era. In his time as a ballroom gigolo, he only stole a kiss or two. By contrast 62-year-old Giovanni - an Italian gigolo - claims to have bedded 3,000 women in a life that has brought him good clothes, expensive dinners, holidays, allowances and the company of a sex that he adores. The tradition lives on in Philip from Santiago. In the prime of life, he too is a master in the art of hunting, seduction, and the enjoyment of worldly and fleshly rewards that come from women who are wealthy and in need of excitement.

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.

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.
