: Forgotten Pilots

The first of two programmes. The exploits of RAF pilots in the Second World War are widely known and well documented: But what has not been recognised is the achievement of a civilian organisation on which the men who fought the war in the air had to depend. David Lomax tells the story of the women who flew for the Air
Transport Auxiliary. Their job was to ferry the fighters and bombers from the factories to the RAF. It was a difficult and dangerous task, and many lives were lost.
Today the programme shows how the Air Transport
Auxiliary was formed, how the women had to overcome the prejudice of the military authorities, and how success was tinged with sorrow at the death of Amy Johnson , the first to be killed. Producer JOHN COLEMAN

Starring Ginger Rogers Joel McCrea.

With a family like Ellie May's, it's no wonder she lies about them when romance enters her life. After all, dad's a drunk and ma's money comes from 'gentlemen friends'.
But the truth will out... Farce, comedy and drama combine in this fascinating portrait of small-town poverty.

: DEF II

Out of Our Heads
with Elaine Cusack.
Elaine quietly smiles when you say she is hard to label; she revels in the contradictions. A child of the Thatcher era, she remains an independent thinking young woman - rejecting some of the 80s values, with a distinct romantic 50s air about her. She is a poet, but a poet more influenced by music than words.
Tonight's music includes the Fall, the Housemartins and live performances by Martin Stephenson and 50s style band, the Sureshots. Director JOHN WARWICK Producer MARLA BLAKE
A ZENITH NORTH production for BBC Newcastle
7.05-7.40 Snub

Black Schizophrenia
British Afro-Caribbeans are ten times more likely to develop schizophrenia than the rest of the population, according to a psychiatric study in Nottingham.
Black critics claim that white psychiatrists are misdiagnosing black people and that the report is a classic example of racism in medicine. They also warn that the report may do untold harm to our race relations.
The Nottingham researchers believe that their findings could provide a clue to the causes of this mysterious and terrible form of madness.
Are their conclusions valid and should the research have been done?

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.
