: Review

A Prayer for the Dying
Michael Cockerell reviews the new film starring
Mickey Rourke , Bob Hoskins and Alan Bates , set amid the troubles in Northern Ireland, and asks how successfully cinema and television have met the challenge of representing Ulster on the screen.
Monuments for Our Time Andrew Graham Dixon reviews the first retrospective exhibition of the work of sculptor
Michael Sandle which opens today at the Whitechapel Gallery, London. Sandle's
St George and the Dragon and The Drummer are triumphant treatments of traditional themes, whereas A 20th-century Monument and A
Mighty Blow for Freedom are brutal attacks on current preoccupations: the Vietnam War and the obsession with television. Sandle is interviewed in his studio in Karlsruhe, West Germany, where he is Professor of Sculpture. Directors

: Secret Services: The Sewermen

We all depend on services few of us would want to provide. The jobs are often unpleasant, sometimes shameful - not the kind of jobs you'd want to talk about. This series looks at these 'secret services' - and the people who provide them, in the face of ignorance, suspicion or distaste.
This film features a team of Manchester City Council sewermen in combat against the crumbling walls of the city's 1,500-mile network - one of the oldest in the country. Our cities would be cesspits of contagious disease without sewage systems. Yet the men who keep the sewers flowing know that the public would prefer to forget them and their work.

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.
