: Dancing in the Rain

To the boarding houses of Blackpool, buffeted by howling winds and high seas, come 700 hopeful couples with one thing in common - a passion for dancing.
Competing in the most important ballroom dancing championships of the year are a 6ft 4in plumber, a 56-year-old gas fitter, a secretary from the Ministry of Defence, two shop assistants from a smart
London store, and a teenage couple still at school.
They're all tough, fit and determined; prepared to sacrifice everything for a sport that can cost well over E3,000 a year. Narrator Ian Holm

A weekly report on the world of education with Martin Young
As a brand new teacher I was told: 'Don't worry son, the longer you stay in this job, the easier it gets. ' Twenty-two years later I think it's not less enjoyable, but it's a lot harder.
What's it like being a teacher today and how are they coping with the increasingly complex job they are being asked to perform? The view from the staff room of Airedale High School in Castleford, West Yorkshire. Producer IAN WOOLF

with David Jessel and Sue Cook
A Bristol University student has failed his maths exams. Nothing unusual in that, except that Francis Foecke failed because the examiners say his results were too good to be true.
He has spent months of worry and thousands of pounds on legal action trying to prove that he is a genius rather than a cheat.

From Aerosols to Zoos A hard look at the environment with Michael Buerk and reporters John Howard and Linda Mitchell
Fish farming in Scotland could be worth £100 million by the end of the decade. But will it benefit the local crofters or big business? Can planning and pollution controls protect the traditional beauty of the Highlands? This week, as the industry meets in Inverness to celebrate a boom year, Nature examines a debate that's shaking the glens. Plus live interviews on the latest news stories and the results of last week's hotline calls.

A series of films about our lives - now
Annie Doesn't Work Here
Any More
At Withington she ran a ward of 25 patients; in America she has just five private patients. The surprises come quickly: 'high life' in Hollywood but violence on the street where she lives, superb facilities at Brotman but worries over the US health system. These worries are shared by other British nurses in the Brotman intensive care unit, in maternity and in casualty. For some of the nurses, there are even differences in medical ethics.
Annie makes a decision about her future ...

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.
