: Just Another Day

with John Pitman
AA
Next time your car breaks down or won't start, and the AA says there's a two-hour wait, here's a tip. Tell them you're a doctor or a nurse or a teacher. Say you're a plumber on an emergency call - and you'll get priority. 'It's a good trick', says
Sgt Johnny Towers , who is based at Stanmore, Britain's busiest AA Centre. 'That way they get instant service.'
Today a doctor is locked out of his car. They rush to his rescue. He is a doctor. 'Any patients waiting?', he's asked. 'Well, no ... I'm a doctor of science.' Nice one. On the M4 a member who 'breaks down all the time' waits patiently for help, along with hundreds of other casualties who haven't thought to tell a lie.

: 40 Minutes

A series of films about our lives now.
East Side Story
'Mug a Yuppie!' scream the graffiti. It's an extreme view, but there are tensions in the London Docklands. Despite the stock market crash, new residents, many with City connections, continue to flood in. Traditional East Enders feel they are being forced out, but the Government praises Docklands as a model solution to inner-city decay. Tonight two Docklands residents, both 26 years old, tell their stories. Anthony Mayhew , a newcomer, is a well-paid City trader. He likes his new home - it's convenient for work, a good investment, and there's plenty of windsurfing and water ski-ing nearby. Terry Johns , born in Docklands, works in a City ironmonger's shop. He and his wife, Marie, are having their first child. There's little chance of finding a bigger council flat.
The new wealth fosters resentment. And in the shadows lurks the activist group Class War ...

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.
