: All Our Working Lives

The last in an 11-part television history of Britain at work in the 20th century. Hindsight
In earlier programmes men and women who worked across British industry, from textile mills to car plants, shipyards to television factories, told what has happened to them since the First World War.
Though there have been massive improvements in wages and conditions, one question dominates these stories: why did Britain's productivity and competitiveness fall so far behind her neighbours in Western Europe, America and Japan? Was it the 19th-century inheritance, labour relations, or the part played by the Government, that held Britain back? Managers and workers look back on what went right, and what went wrong.

: We Shoot Horses Don't We ... ?

Every week it's estimated that as many as 1,000 horses and ponies are slaughtered in this country for human consumption abroad. It's a controversial trade whose opponents claim is open to abuse and cruelty. The programme looks at the campaign being waged by the Horse Rescue Fund in Suffolk to save some of these ponies from starvation and slaughter.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
