: - British Comedy Festival: The Man in the White Suit

Starring Alec Guinness and Joan Greenwood.
In this superlative Ealing comedy, a humble laboratory dishwasher, Sidney Stratton , produces a miraculous invention — a fabric that cannot get dirty and never wears out. Being politically naive, Sidney is amazed that no one wants his invention; but being also an idealist, he is determined that the world shall have it.

: 9 II 5: Work Work Work

It's 1990. By now we were all supposed to be working less, with the microchip making boring jobs obsolete. Yet there are more jobs than ever, people work longer hours and the pressure is on. 9 II 5 5 returns to keep you abreast of the changing world of work. Susan Rae goes to Sheffield, once the great steel heartland of the north, but now bidding to become a post-industrial city in which music will provide more jobs than metal bashing. Geoff Small reports from Southampton on workaholic mania. John Withington asks what the changing pattern of work means for Britain.

When the pictures were shown in Britain, they sparked a nationwide appeal. A month later, reporter Jenny Craddock returned with a second convoy to see what could be done to help.

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.
