A Story-teller's Tale
This month Bookmark features two extremes of American story-telling.
Peter Taylor is little known in this country but in America many consider him their greatest short-story writer. Next month he publishes a fine novel,
A Summons to Memphis. Ian Hamilton talks to
Peter Taylor at his home in Charlottesville, Virginia, about the foibles of his
Southern family and the phases of his own life which have shaped his calm, civilised, engaging voice. Swimming to Cambodia
Spalding Gray is not a writer. He tells his stories and those witty stories are his life.
Bookmark followed this zany tale-teller during a recent tour of Britain, as he absorbed the experiences and the encounters which become his living fiction.
In Manchester and London he performs the taut monologues which are his recorded life story so far.

Happy St. Patrick's Day! 17 March 2016

: 40 Minutes

Alpha One is the call-sign of the central fire station in Hull, one of the busiest in the country. It deals with 200 emergency calls a month and with the largest variety of incidents in Britain.
The crew of fire-engine Alpha One/One turn out day and night to answer calls for help. A lorry is ablaze in a garage ... women are trapped in a lift ... a budgie has to be rescued from a chip pan fire ... 250 tons of fish oil are spilled in the street ... and Alpha One/One is on its way. The firemen comfort the injured at road accidents, treat the casualties at house fires, investigate a possible arson. It's all part of the danger and drama facing the men at this hectic northern fire station.

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.
