Noise Pollution

: A Week with the Whip

As a young man, Michael Ellison had no ambition to play centre forward for
Halifax Town - nor even to become one of the area's textile millionaires.
Instead, he wanted to be the town clerk. Twenty years or so later, he made it. The job is now called, grandly, Chief Executive, and it makes him one of the busiest men in Calderdale. Rumour has it they call him the Whip.

Perestroika for Psychiatry?
Since 1983, Soviet psychiatry had been out in the cold - shunned for its abuse of psychiatry. Poets, writers and scientists troublesome to the state have often been diagnosed as schizophrenic and forcibly interned in high-security psychiatric institutions. Have the new winds of reform reached into the asylums? When it meets in October in Athens, will the World Psychiatric
Association re-admit the Soviet Union?
Kapitza, the Crocodile and the Kremlin
A portrait of the remarkable Russian physicist, Peter Kapitza and his extraordinary apprenticeship in Cambridge until his detention in the Soviet Union by Stalin - the start of a series of dangerous encounters with the Kremlin, as Kapitza struggles to keep politics out of the laboratory.

by Maurice Leitch. With
Kenny's work as a nurse in a psychiatric hospital isn't just a job, it's a vocation. His special group of patients are his friends - his only friends.
When a strange young man is introduced to the group, he threatens the love, discipline and respect that have been the very basis of Kenny's authority, and all that surrounds the institution is scant protection from the madness of the world beyond.

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.
