A weekly look behind the scenes at the world of education with Linda Alexander and Martin Young. Some of today's children will be tomorrow's

David Jessell and Sue Cook examine the sparks -which fly when people clash with the law.
This week: dodging traffic and dual carriageways to sell newspapers to motorists is just one of the jobs done illegally by thousands of British children.

: The Duty Men

Third of seven programmes filmed over two years inside the secretive world of HM Customs and Excise. Surveillance
Tonight an undercover team investigates a VAT fraud. Their only clues are 50 fake companies which have falsely claimed as much as E250,000 from Customs and Excise.
The investigators' frustrations grow as they spend fruitless days waiting in the freezing cold for their quarry to show. Tensions boil over into arguments until they sight their man for the first time.
After a dramatic car chase they 'house' him and wait. Unaware of the many watchers staking out the centre of Coventry, the target quietly arrives in the area ... Photography PATRICK O'SHEA Film editor ALAN LYGO Assistant producer ROGER COURTIOUR

: A Simple Man

A ballet to celebrate the centenary of the painter L. S. Lowry
Music composed by CARL DAVIS
Choreography by GILLIAN LYNNE starring
Christopher Gable Moira Shearer with Northern Ballet Theatre and members of the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Carl Davis This new television ballet tells the story of a man who is seen by many as one of the greatest British artists of the 20th century, L. S. Lowry. It deals with his struggle for recognition and with the search for his subjects. Born in Manchester in 1887, Lowry declared his ambition was not to be a painter but was 'to put the industrial landscape on the map'.
The landscape he often chose was that around Salford. It was the City of Salford that first commissioned this evening's work. The programme is introduced by a man who has admired
Lowry's paintings for many years, Salford-born actor Albert Finney.

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.
