: All Our Working Lives

An ll-part television history of Britain at work in the 20th century. 2: The Track
The car firms prospered when other industries were in decline in the 1930s. They were based on a new type of work - the moving track:
Anyone could do it, it didn't matter whether it was an engineer or the man who swept the road. They could train him in five to ten minutes. it was really boring ... but they did it for the money. (ASSEMBLY WORKER) Car workers and their bosses talk about the good times, when Britain's motor industry was second only to the Americans', profits and wages were high, and exports boomed after the war.
But the writing was on the wall. By the 1970s Britain's car makers were on the brink of collapse, from which they have been slow to recover.

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.
