This week, the changing world of office design. The introduction of the typewriter in the 1880s began the office revolution. By 1911, women accounted for a quarter of all clerical jobs. In the past office design was dictated by the managers. It often resulted in cramped and uncomfortable working conditions for the staff. Now, greater attention is being paid to the needs of everyone who works in an office - with designer furniture and interior decorators fast becoming a feature of everyday life.

The way we live now. Knickerbockers in Knightsbridge
Hill House School, one of the largest prep schools in Britain, is unlike any other. It has no governors, no parent/teacher association, no office, no secretary, no typewriter. The most famous old boy is the Prince of Wales. Founder Colonel Stuart Townend, Empire Games gold medallist, 80 this year, still runs the school in his own unconventional way. 'Colonel Bossyboots', the News of the World dubbed him - but he didn't mind. 'I'm the King of Hans Place ,' he says.
The boys and girls of Hill House wear knickerbockers. Teachers are fined if they're ill, but handed £10 after staff meetings.
Sports are important. The Colonel gets up at 4.00am daily, and flies to Switzerland every week. He leads groups of pupils on tough treks in the Swiss Alps. 'I like to get to the top in everything.... why not be top?'

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.
