Last in the series
Managing Midland
The Midland Bank is in the midst of change, and the Chairman Sir Kit McMahon believes his rescue plan has reached a critical stage. His twin-track approach means radical cost cutting and a drive to develop and sell new products to customers. If it fails a new takeover attempt seems inevitable. So is it make or break for Midland? Nisha Steyn reports.

: Alexei Sayle's Stuff

First of six programmes Fun with Magnets

Dear Radio Times,
Hooray for Alexei Sayle ! The funniest TV show since The Good Life. What a tonic his series Stuff is. I haven't laughed so much since Margo fell flat on her face in the compost heap. One tiny request, though, could you get rid of that Fat Bastard in the tight suit and put in more scenes with Felicity Kendal wrinkling her nose up?
Many, many thanks
(Mrs) D.W. Piper
Bude, Cornwall

Who gives a damn what you think? ALEXEI SAYLE

Featuring Alexei Sayle with MORWENNA BANKS, BEN DAVIS, TONY HAASE, RAD KOHANZAD, ANGUS MACKAY, TONY MILLAN, FELICITY MONTAGU, MAGGIE OLLERENSHAW, ROBIN RAY, PATSY SMART, MARK WILLIAMS

: Second Sight

Women first filmed in the 60s tell the story of their lives over the past 20 years. Agnes and Jeanie
In 1966 Agnes Henderson and Jeanie Read lived on opposite sides of a run-down Georgian square in north London.
Agnes was a bus conductress and sculptress, and Jeanie was a working mum.
In 23 years Gibson Square has changed from a dilapidated, mainly working-class neighbourhood to an exclusive - and expensive - area. What happened to two of its original tenants when the prices went up?

: Grand Prix

Canadian Grand Prix
The Grand Prix circus has moved 2,000 miles north from the heat of Phoenix to the ÃŽle Notre-Dame at Montreal on the St Lawrence Seaway. But it's going to take more than a changing climate to break the stranglehold the McLaren team has on the World Championship.
Alain Prost, who has scored in every race this season, leads from team mate
Ayrton Senna, who won here last year.
It's also the final part of the 1989 Grand Prix competition, with a trip to the Spanish Grand Prix in October as the top prize.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
