The series in which the public make programmes under their own editorial control.
Finished at 40. Life was sweet for Robert Smith , a secure job at British Aerospace, a nice home. Then he was made redundant, and two years and 500 applications later he remains unemployed, a victim of age discrimination.
Philip and Bernice Walker , who made this film, found his transition from managing director to the dole queue almost too great a shock -
3,000 suicides each year are blamed directly on long-term unemployment. His anger made him create the Campaign against Age Discrimination in Employment, and make use of the qualifications and expertise that the captains of industry have been quick to throw aside. Producer Paul Pierrot
Executive producer Giles Oakley

: Horizon

A Question of Sport....
Evidence of a massive sporting fraud perpetrated by scientists in the former communist state of East Germany has been uncovered. The GDR's phenomenal Olympic success throughout the 80s was attributed to a near-perfect system for producing world champions. But did they break the rules?
Tonight's programme reveals a secret drug programme for the elite that was codenamed "state plan 14.25". Some of the "doping doctors" tell how they beat drug controls, experimented on teenage girls, and used neuropeptides on champions. Who is to blame when the state corrupts both sport and science?

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.
