: Ours to Keep

Six films about people determined to defend historic buildings against the destructive effects of social change and market forces.
4: The Rev David Wyatt 's Seven Deadly Sins
'A vicar's job is to care for people who will one day go to heaven; buildings don't go to heaven.' This way of thinking is 'spiritual blindness', says The Rev David Wyatt. For him it represents the most insidious of the 'seven deadly sins', or attitudes of mind, which threaten
Manchester's heritage of fine Victorian churches. The citizens of Manchester built no less than 76 churches during the Victorian era, but only 24 of them are still standing.
When David Wyatt arrived in Salford he found his church about to be demolished. Today, after years of painstaking restoration, it survives as an inspiration to groups of Christians in parishes all over Manchester who are struggling to keep their churches open for worship.

The Eternal Triangle
A documentary trilogy that examines a central sexual dilemma from the viewpoint of the mistress, the wife and the husband. The Husband
'A mistress is a hobby: a wife is a career.'
'I fell in love once with a pair of legs, stockings and ankle-strap shoes - and there was no one inside....'
'Marriage is warfare, it's a silent war. Divorce is a holocaust.'
Three men, who are, or have been, husbands talk frankly about their marriages and the other women in their lives. Journalist and writer JEFFREY BERNARD has been husband to four wives. He knows more than most why marriages fail. LEON from Blackpool took a mistress. But the affair ended when
Leon's wife became pregnant. The marriage finally collapsed many years later when Leon could not come to terms with his wife's infidelity. The third husband is JEAN-CLAUDE, a Frenchman, who enjoys an open marriage, in which wife and mistress are fully aware that he and they are a triangle. The final film in this trilogy illustrates, from the viewpoint of the male, the pitfalls of marriage and its often unhappy aftermath. Film cameraman ALEX HANSEN

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
