Poetry, Pain and Pleasure 'The Seduction', by EILEEN MCAULEY , was the winning poem among the 73,000 entries to the 1986 Young Observer
Poetry Competition. The poem is a cool dramatic treatment of seduction and loss of innocence, and shows that poetry can certainly deal with the realities of modem teenage life.

: Gardeners' World

from
Spetchley Park, Worcester
Presented by Roy Lancaster and Geoff Hamilton
The gardens of Spetchley Park are large - a lost paradise of rare and interesting plants, many of which are totally hardy throughout the British Isles. Visiting large gardens provides the opportunity of seeing mature plants and assessing their suitability for your own garden.
Last year Roy and Geoff did one better. Gardeners'
World visited the gardens in spring, summer and autumn, looking for herbaceous plants, shrubs and trees which would provide colour and interest throughout the year. No matter how small your particular garden may be, whether it's acid or lime, there will be plenty of down-to-earth practical advice to ensure that you too can have colour throughout the changing seasons.

The Confessions of Robert Crumb
After Robert Crumb , comics could never be the same again. He came to fame in the mid 60s with characters such as Fritz the Cat and the archetypal guru Mr Natural , wicked satires on the excesses of the Love
Generation. In a medium associated with super-heroes, Crumb deals only with anti-heroes, most entertainingly his own self-portrait, a confused, paranoid weakling with an unfortunate taste for big, powerful women. Lost in the modern world, Crumb has found refuge in rural
California with his wife and fellow comic artist, Aline.
Kominsky. Tonight, in a rare appearance before the camera, he talks about his work and his troubles with women, life and himself. Film cameraman COLIN CASE Film editor DAVID KITSON Executive producers

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.
