Tonight three new presenters - Sarah and Angela Brown and Paul Little -join regulars Jenny Powell and Tony Baker to star in Five Go to Newquay. No, not an undiscovered Enid Blyton text, but the world's fastest- moving rock show coming from the south west of the south west. Fifty minutes of powerplays, music videos,
British and American charts, interspersed with pasties and pilchards, shark fishing and surf.
But why is Tony eating daffodils and dancing the cancan with Paul Little - surely the rum and raisin fudge can't be that strong? Associate producer JONATHAN KING

: Chopsticks, Bulldozers and Newcastle Brown

A year ago the Japanese company Komatsu moved into an empty factory just south of Newcastle. Their aim was to bring the Japanese work ethic to Britain. This series of three programmes looks at the challenges facing British and Japanese workers and management in the first difficult year of the factory.
3: Newcastle Brown
The British manager has been employed by the Japanese to bring morning exercises, uniforms and equal status to Newcastle. The workers he has to convince are Geordies, with a culture quite alien to that of Tokyo head office.
Over the year very British answers are tried to 'the Japanese way'. Reporter

: Thrillers and Chillers: Crossfire

Starring Robert Young, Robert Mitchum, Robert Ryan

This masterwork of post-war American cinema proved a landmark for RKO and a group of studio regulars. Combining elements of a nerve-wracking thriller with a portrait of a murderous anti-Semite, the film was the studio's most controversial - and commercially successful - of its year.
A soldier murders a Jewish war veteran and is misguidedly protected by some fellow soldiers out of loyalty. Meanwhile a dogged policeman determines that the crime will not go unsolved.
Sharp Chandleresque dialogue, atmospheric photography and fine performances all contribute to a powerful and compelling film.

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.
