: The Education Programme

A weekly look behind the scenes, at the world of education with Linda Alexander and Martin Young.
This month Cambridgeshire completes a scheme to give head teachers and school governors more control over their schools' pursestrings. The Government wants to enshrine what is known as local financial management in its new Education Act, but can heads be both accountants and teachers? And how will it benefit the children?
Schools in Huntingdon and Bassingbourn provide some of the answers.

: Out of Court

David Jessel and Sue Cook examine the sparks which fly when people clash with the law. This week: a year ago the police handed over responsibility for prosecuting criminals to the new Crown Prosecution Service. Today, the CPS is unable to attract enough high-quality lawyers. Often villains walk free from British courts, as evidence is mislaid, papers lost and cases mishandled. Victims of crime, police officers and many of the prosecutors themselves are angry.

: Peter Ustinov's Russia

Peter Ustinov presents the last in a six-part, personal and entertaining view of Russia's tumultuous history. My Russia
Peter Ustinov roams the length and breadth of the Soviet Union: spending his birthday in Georgia, visiting a children's theatre in Siberia, enjoying opera at the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow, Chekhov in the playwright's home town of Taganrog and being deafened in a disco. His final interview is with the lethargic Oblomov, the very incarnation of yesterday's Russia and a far cry from today's energetic, progressive people.

The Rothmans Grand Prix The Quarter-Finals
If the previous round matches have gone according to form, the line-up for tonight's two quarter-finals ought to be: defending champion JIMMY WHITE versus JOE JOHNSON , and TONY KNOWLES versus reigning World Champion STEVE DAVIS. However, Messrs TONY DRAGO
WILLIE THORNE or STEPHEN HENDRY might easily have upset these calculations.

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.
