: This Week 9-2-5

This week 9-2-5 follows a working mother as she travels to work with her baby.
By 1995 population changes will result in companies having to employ more women than at any time since the Second World War. Yet attitudes are still firmly rooted in the past.
Britain has the worst record in Europe for the provision of child care. The programme looks at a company that is leading the way by catering for the special needs of women with children.
And from the 9-2-5 office a discussion on the issues that affect people at work in 1989. In episode three of The Move, staff receive 'the letter'. Good news for some and disappointment for others as they discover what the company will offer them to move to their new location. Series editor TIM SHAWCROSS

: 40 Minutes

A series of films about real lives - now.
The Kingdom of Fun
'Welcome to the new empire of leisure,' proclaims
Frankie Howerd in his toga, surrounded by Roman centurions. The empire in question is the Metro Centre, a vast new shopping complex in the industrial dereliction of Tyneside. 'This centre embodies everything I believe Thatcherism is about,' says John Hall , its creator. He's a flamboyant multi-millionaire with a personal crusade to regenerate the North East.
Hall's world is one of fantasy parks and shopping malls designed like theatre sets. It is also a world of secret deals - and a dramatic plot to take over a famous football club. John Hall believes that with leisure he can lead the way towards a new kind of society in Britain. Yet a generation ago there was another man in the North East who spoke in remarkably similar terms.
His name was T. Dan Smith. ... Photography CHRIS SEAGER Film editor CAROL OWENS Producer ADAM CURTIS

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.
