: The Education Programme

A weekly report on the world of education with Martin Young
Britain's classrooms are currently the focus of a bitter political and educational debate. Politicians, teachers' unions, educational experts and parents are all having their say. The missing voice is that of the real consumers, the pupils themselves. Thirty secondary school pupils from all over the country say what they think of their education and how they would like to see it changed.

: Out of Court

with David Jessel and Sue Cook
Many of us live off credit, yet credit too often and too easily turns into debt. Last year over two million people in debt came before the hard-pressed county courts. In some areas cases have to be disposed of at the rate of one a minute. To pay off existing debts people are turning in despair to loan sharks, who can push them further and further into trouble - and often in the end into prison.

: 40 Minutes

A series of films about our lives - now
7, Alison
The story of a remarkable young woman.
It's Alison French's wedding day. She's 24 - vivacious, candid, attractive, with a warm smile and a lively sense of humour. Alison, professionally qualified as a youth worker, is marrying
Mark John. What makes her wedding different is that she's an athetoid spastic - her body's never still, and she has difficulty with her speech.
Seven years ago, 40 Minutes made an acclaimed film about Alison, telling of her bid to gain independence in the able-bodied world.
Tonight's follow-up is a passionate love story. But in marrying the man she loves, Alison has to leave her family in Watford, set up a new home in South Wales, and adapt to being a clergyman's wife.
Her heart is still set on finding an independent job. The harsh reality is that despite her skills and rare qualities, she may face rejection. But Alison doesn't give up easily ...

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.
