: 9-II-5

Jackie Spreckley reports on the changing environment of the production line.
With new technology and higher demands for productivity, what is it like to work in a modem factory? The cameras look in on a new experiment in factory working which aims to break down some of the old 'management-worker' divisions.
From the 9-II-5 offices, a topical discussion on the trends that are affecting our working lives in 1989. In Episode 9 of The Move, the company business is carrying on while the EPL managers sort out the problems of relocation. But even on the construction sites at Penmaenmawr in Wales, the question of the move to the new headquarters in Cambridgeshire is much in evidence.

The Greening of Mrs Thatcher From No 10 Downing Street Mrs Thatcher talks to Michael Buerk.
Prime Minister for ten years, Mrs Thatcher and her
Government's environmental record hasn't won her many bouquets.
This weekend she hosts a major international conference on saving the ozone layer, when that record and her commitment will be on the line.
She says that the Tories are the real 'friends of the earth', but is she genuinely committed or just chasing the Green vote?
Tonight she talks for the first time about her own attitude to the environment, and what her new initiatives could mean for Britain and the rest of the world. Research MARK FIELDER

: 40 Minutes: Ghost Train

The way we live now.
A journey by Intercity into the world of the supernatural.
Do you believe in ghosts? Helen McCormick does. She found an ancient crucifix in her cellar - and then saw a medieval monk walk past her kitchen window.
Ambulanceman Ken Lobley rescued his aunt after a warning from an apparition. Nichola Thompson, aged 13, was reading, looked up, and saw her grandmother - wearing the pink shroud she'd been buried in two years earlier.
Rev Jack Richardson investigates spooky Harnham Hall in Northumberland. He blesses the earthly remains of Kate Babington, who died a prisoner at Harnham in 1670. Eddie Burks, a 'clairsentient', is summoned to an RAF base to contact the ghost of an airman. Eerily, he describes how the man died and why he returns. And four nurses spend the night in 'the most haunted house in Britain' - with strange tales to tell the following morning....

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.
