: Do They Mean Us?

Our humour baffles foreigners, our politics bother them, our traditions bemuse them. And as to our attitude toward sex - c'est hardly 'formidable'.
Tonight, and for the next five weeks, Derek Jameson looks at the way foreign television reports on us, the British.
Apparently, we don't wash, we don't know how to bring up our children, and we are morose and miserable even on holiday. On the other hand, we are always polite, we are kind to animals, and we would be great in a crisis - if we knew one when we saw one. Derek Jameson brings his own special wit to bear on the way they see us British. Research MARK ROGERS

: Designs on Britain

A two-part documentary on design and how it shapes the world we live in. 2: From Wasteland to Wonderworld?
Because Britain didn't design the goods people wanted, the World shopped elsewhere. But there's not much wrong with our designers; some of the brightest have been hired by the foreign competition.
This programme investigates how a promising young British designer,
George Sowden , was snapped up by the successful Italian company, Olivetti. He's now one of the most acclaimed figures in the design world.
Meanwhile, many of our own companies go down for want of good design. The
Programme looks at some of the British firms who are trying to reverse the trend. There is, at last, a boom in the fashion and retail trade, whether on the fringe, like the BodyMap fashion team, or in the mainstream, like the Next chain of clothes shops. Even something as mundane as a truck cab becomes a design success story for Coventry's Motor Panels company. Now the government is pushing design as never before. All over the country, remodelled docklands, new offices, and a fresh approach to the look of shopping centres, begin to Point to a change in the British indifference to design. with BodyMap,

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.
