: The People's Schools

The last of five programmes on the history of mass education in England and Wales.
Industry
England's early industrial supremacy owed little to education. As foreign competition loomed, schools in Victorian Birmingham began to link their timetable to the needs of local manufacturers. Yet 100 years later, vocational education is still a new and controversial issue.

: Alec Clifton-Taylor's English Towns

Beverley, North Humberside 'From the train it looks as if the railway is going to run straight through the transept, but at the last moment it swerves to the right, and, thank goodness, the second finest non-cathedral church in England remains intact.
Alec Clifton-Taylor visits this little-known town just north of the Humber, 'in what I still continue to call the East
Riding of Yorkshire.' Its prize possession is the wonderful medieval Minster church built of Tadcaster limestone, but there are also some fine Georgian brick houses with elegant staircases and cornices and some excellent stucco.

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.
