: Open Space

The series where the public can make programmes under their own editorial control. Childcare Crisis
Employers desperately need women workers because of a dramatic drop in the number of school leavers. But who will look after the children while they are at work?
Britain has fewer publicly-funded childcare facilities than other EEC countries.
The government expects private enterprise and employers to provide nurseries and creches. In this programme, the organisation Childcare Now argues that Britain is heading towards the American style of childcare. Their concern is that this country will end up with a two-tier system - with a handful of very expensive services for the rich and a lot of poor quality childcare for the rest.

Michael Delahaye goes to France with a family who are buying a little house in another country, and discovers whether we have anything to learn from the French. Producer TONY CHAPMAN Editor COUN STANBRIDGE

: Gardeners' World

from Barnsdale with Geoff Hamilton and Anne Swithinbank.
Collecting seed to perpetuate plants that have been particularly successful this year can lead to some excitement next year. You might end up with an aquilegia, a poppy, a foxglove that no one else has ever grown before. Autumn flowering bulbs for late season colour will take over from fading annuals, and why not try blueberries to garnish next year's Christmas turkey? Production assistant

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.
