: Just Another Day

Eight films which go behind the scenes of places which are part of the British way of life.
5: Cross-Channel Ferry
Every day in summer 75,000 people sail away from Dover across the Channel. Each ferry goes backwards and forwards three times. It can get very confusing to the crew-sometimes they have to ask passengers which way the boat is going.
The passengers have their own problems. The Wallys, for instance, are trying to get to France. Trouble is, their car has broken down three times so far.
When the ferry docks at Calais, Pru Lobbard isn't queueing to get off. She's only here for the duty free. 'Well, they rip you off in France,' she says, 'and then there's all those dogs with muzzles....' Day trippers sing on in the bar, a nun buys her spirits allowance, and the chef fries the Dover sole that comes from Calais. Photography TERRY DOE

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.
