: Open Space

Straight and narrow minded homophobia, n., intense hatred or fear of homosexuals or homosexuality.
Stephen Burn , a gay journalist, has made this programme to highlight a prejudice which every day confronts people like him. It loses lesbian women and gay men their jobs, forces them out of their homes, causes them to be imprisoned and sadly drives some to suicide. Based on fear and ignorance, homophobia is on the increase. Its growth can be stopped but only when discrimination is tackled head on. Film cameraman JOHN RECORD Film editor KEVIN HINCHEY
Open Space is the series where the public can make programmes under their own editorial control helped by the Community Programme Unit

Traces of Murder
When there is a series of linked murders, particularly of children, the killer is likely to strike again. These are the most serious of crimes. After failures in the case of the Yorkshire Ripper, the Home Secretary promised the harnessing for such investigations of the best detective and forensic skills in the country, and the use of computer technology. Has this happened? New technology is now available on both sides of the Atlantic and may increase the chances of solving these disturbing crimes. Narrator Paul Vaughan Film editor COLIN JONES


Narrator: Paul Vaughan
Producer: Christopher La Fontaine
Editor: Robin Brightwell

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.
