: All Our Working Lives

An 11-part television history of Britain at work in the 20th century.
6: Cutting Coal
Coal had powered Britain's industrial rise. Her mills and furnaces, railways and steamships, depended on it. In the peak years a million men laboured in the mines, many in conditions like those Dick Martin found when he began as a pit boy aged 14: 'I was scared stiff by the atmosphere in the pit, the conditions we were expected to work under, the stench, the darkness, and I cried my eyes out to my father and said, "I don't want to go back there, Dad." "Well, it's a case of you've got to," he said.'
Miners and managers tell of the poor conditions, insecurity and technical backwardness that helped the case for nationalisation in 1947. But the new NCB overestimated the future need for coal. After the massive postwar modernisation programme, demand changed. With the cutbacks came conflict.

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.

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.
