Alison French is an attractive, intelligent
18-year-old girl. But she was born spastic. Her body is constantly shaken by spasms and her speech is distorted. This is the story of Alison's adventures on the road to independence: the last few days at a college for the disabled; the driving test; her first boyfriend and the one thing that will win her a place in ordinary society - a job. How can Alison find employment in a country where three million able-bodied persons have already tried and failed? Written and narrated by Michael Dean

with Angela Rippon
A tour of the West Country From Cherhill to Devizes On this visit to Wiltshire, Angela finds out how a brewery makes beer and tries her hand as a blacksmith. She also discovers several curiosities: a painting of a naked highwayman; a statue depicting pigs; a plaque that tells the amazing story of how a woman died; and a pond that, tradition says, gave rise to the term 'moonraker'.

: The Education Programme

A weekly report on the world of education with Linda Alexander and Martin Young
Few issues in education raise quite as much heat as the question of testing, particularly testing children as young as 7. The government's task group, set up to look at assessment and testing, has proposed a sophisticated system of ten achievement levels designed to get away from the idea of 'passing' or 'failing'. But can this new system be made to work in both secondary and primary schools, and what will it actually mean for the pupils in the classroom? Producer DAVE THOMAS Editor PETER RIDING (e)

: Out of Court

Presented by David Jessel and Sue Cook
Aiding and abetting a criminal act is against the law. So is conspiring to pervert the course of justice. But many insurance policies let convicted drink-drivers claim money to cover taxis and chauffeurs.
It's a considerable compensation for losing a licence, but is it legal?
Government lawyers must now decide whether such insurance policies should be outlawed on the grounds that they constitute inducements to commit crime.

The Great North Road with Lucinda Lambton
The Great North Road is the backbone of Britain, linking London to Edinburgh. Lucinda Lambton was brought up in Durham, within sight of it. 'I've charged up and down this road all my life,' she says, 'always with a zinging feeling of anticipation.'
Now she's off north again in search of the unexpected.
The delights she's discovered include a calico grotto in a London kitchen, a lost domain in Yorkshire, a richly-panelled hotel saloon with an unexpected past.... And then there are the Everly Brothers from Nashville, Tennessee. Lucinda met them on another journey north when she was just 17 ... Photography MARTIN PATMORE

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.
