: Just Another Day

with John Pitman
Six films which go behind the scenes of places which are part of the British way of life. 2: Heathrow
Heathrow is the world's busiest airport - 45,000 people work here and cater for 75.000 passengers a day. Here is Bemadette MacDonaId, check-in girl. never without a smile on her face. 'It comes on when I arrive and it gets peeled off like a mask when I leave.'
Up on the roof the plane-spotters are bugging the control tower for up-to-date information. In terminal three, the photographers are snatching the stars. Today, it's Shirley Bassey.
There are tearful farewells and happy reunions. And, as evening draws in, 86-year-old Mrs Amelia Goodman from Clacton-on-Sea prepares to make her first flight. She's never been further than Margate. Today she is emigrating to Australia to be with her family.
Flying in is another greatgrandmother - HM The
Queen Mother For her, it's just another flight; for Amelia it's a big, brave new experience. 'Have 1 got to go in that?' she asks her son. as the Jumbo stands waiting. But go she does - giving everybody a little wave from the steps. Just like somebody else we all know and love ...

Salvador Dali
'The only difference between me and a madman is that I am not mad.' So says
Salvador Dali one of the most famous painters in the world. Dali now lives as a recluse and has been virtually unseen since his near death in a suspicious fire two years ago. Having courted publicity all his life he is now shrouded in secrecy.
Dali is the great showman of Surrealism, the creator of the So/< Wa<c/: and the Lobster TMep/MKe. As a painter his style is unique, yet perhaps his greatest achievement is his own personality. Dali is a self-pronounced genius.
Today Dali lives in the palace museum which he has built as a monument to Ms life, and holds court in the room which he never leaves. .4reKa traces his career through film, much of it from Dali's own private archive, and combines the testimony of his closest associates, including
Captain Peter Moore and Amanda Lear , and his Surrealist contemporaries Max Ernst , Luis Bunuel and Man Ray , with Dali's own extravagant account of his life and adventures.

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.
