: Out of Court

with David Jessel Sue Cook and film reporter Ed Boyle
Jon Nutman was 17 when he had an accident playing rugby at school. He's now in a wheelchair for life. Like the 3,300 British schoolchildren injured on the sports field last year, he has to prove that the school was negligent in order to win compensation. For years most education authorities have ignored advice to take out accident insurance for their pupils.
The High Court may shortly force them to do so. Studio directorPIETER MORPURGO Producer ALAN BOOKBINDER

: The Duty Men

Last of a seven-part series filmed over two years inside the secretive world of Customs and Excise. The Chancers
Dover at night from the white cliffs resembles a Star Wars set - great pools of light, ceaseless coming and going, a relentless stream of humanity, goods and vehicles.
This film follows the 'duty men' on the grind of the busy night shift - from the monotony of hung-over day-trippers to the pressure of snake-like queues of lorries and cars, all wanting to get out of Dover quickly.
In this chaos, and against overwhelming odds, there are some chance finds; tobacco, a drugs haul and an astonishing booze discovery. But even with the successes, as one officer explains, 'It's horrifying to sit and think at the end of a shift: what have I let through tonight?
What have I personally let through?'

: Arena

Invisible Ink
Jewel in the Crown, The
Far Pavilions, A Passage to India. For 200 years British writers have achieved great success with their accounts of life on the Indian subcontinent. Less well-known are the writings of those Indians who travelled to
Britain and recorded their observations throughout the same period. Hardly any of this work has ever been translated, yet it represents a fascinating perspective on how the Indians have seen us. The film includes the witty observations of Mirza Abu Talib, a guest of the aristocracy, on the British class system in 1799; the slavish admiration for
Victorian industrial might expressed by Sir Sayyid Ahmed Khan ; the disillusion which set in during the 30s with the writing of Sajjad Zaheer ; and the introspective poetry of Mazhar Tirmazi - an outstanding poet of a new generation of writers who have settled or were born here.
With specially commissioned translations Arena presents this extraordinary testament for the first time.
With Roshan Seth. star of My Beautiful Laundrette, and Zia Mohyeddin
'He is a friend who, like a mirror, exhibits all your defects; not he who, like a comb, covers them with the hairs of flattery.'

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.
