There's early children's viewing with Rag, Tag and Bobtail, Mr Pastry and Whacko, with a whistle in the dark from the Clangers. There's star guest Richard Stilgoe with a feast of memories of childhood, not forgetting Billy Bunter of Greyfriars with a feast of his own.

: States of Mind

Jonathan Miller talks to eminent psychologists - 12 people who contribute in very different ways to our understanding of the human mind.
Although psychoanalysis is usually associated with the work of Sigmund Freud , a number of psychologists have found themselves in disagreement with certain aspects of Freudian theory, and have developed their own 'variant' forms of analytic treatment. In this country the work of Melanie Klein , who became convinced of the importance of experiences in the first year of life, has been particularly influential.
Dr Hanna Segal , an analyst who worked closely with Melanie Klein , explains the basis of Kleinian analysis. Production

: The Natural World

The Forgotten Garden
Once glorious with exotic blooms, an abandoned Oxfordshire garden is repossessed by nature. The gardener has gone and in his absence the manicured lawn, borders, and trellises have been choked by a jungle of bindweed, nettles and ivy. But there is order here - no plagues of pests as predators and prey exist in uneasy harmony. Unsprayed and unharmed, new life flourishes. Spindly harvestmen, designed to inspire the creators of science fantasy, forage for carrion, wasps construct paper nests, slow-worms engage in sinuous embrace, and bank voles play hide-and-seek with the farm cat.

: Comrades

Ninth in a series of 12 films about life in the Soviet Union. Sumgait Strikers
Ragim Magerramov is the trainer of the strikers at the Lenin Pipe Rolling Mill - on the pitch, that is, not the picket line. For despite the harsh conditions in the factory, industrial action in the Soviet Union is virtually unheard of. Here the unions are busy providing a variety of services for the workers, among which the football club is extremely popular.
The film follows the lives of the trainer and his team at work, at home and in their struggle to wrest the Sumgait Town Championship from the seemingly invincible men from the Synthetic Rubber Factory.

: Architecture at the Crossroads

Ten films about contemporary architecture 1: Doubts and Reassessment For decades it has seemed as if our architectural legacy to the future will be the squalor and ugliness of the modem city. After years of dictating the look of the environment, a kind of infamy is now attached to architecture.
But at last there are signs of hope - architects are learning from the mistakes of the past. An adventurous new spirit has produced new shapes and forms. Architects are no longer afraid to use colour and ornament, and throughout the world the bland and monotonous are beginning to be replaced by the bold and exuberant.
This programme introduces the distinctive work of three young architectural groups who have done much to make architecture acceptable: Team Zoo from Tokyo,
Arquitectonica from Miami and Helmut Jahn from
Chicago, with contributions from 1. M. Pei , Philip Johnson Richard Meier , James Stirling and Richard Rogers. Film cameramen

: Screen Two: The McGuffin

Screenplay by MICHAEL THOMAS
From the novel by JOHN BOWEN starring
Hatcher is a film critic and he's seen too many movies. So when he looks from his rear window and sees a blonde menacing the old lady opposite, it's all too familiar. He gets rapidly and fatally drawn into a mangled net of blackmail, violence and evil deeds in high places - just like the kind of film he loves reviewing. But this time the danger's all too real, or is it?

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.
