: All Our Working Lives

An 11-part television history of Britain at work in the 20th century.
4: Cotton People
Eighty years ago cotton goods were Britain's biggest export by far. A quarter of all overseas earnings came from cotton - 600,000 jobs depended on it:
'The biggest majority of Lancashire girls were in cotton. They all had to go into the mills. And they were weaving, winding, beaming, reeling, picking the cops. They were everything.'
But the cotton people were about to go over a precipice. Trade slumped, and foreign competitors took over.
Was Lancashire an innocent victim of lower Asian wage rates, or could she have done more to re-equip and change with the times? Music by CARL DAVIS

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.
