Rover City. The name of Cowley in Oxford has been linked with the British car industry for most of this century. Oxford car workers have produced some of the most famous names in British cars - from the first bullnose
Morris to the Montego. At one time, 26,000 people worked in the plant, but this summer -
; when Rover is due to close the South Works - only 5,000 : people will remain.
! In a city dominated by the dreaming spires of the university, the prospects for those who work on the assembly lines seem bleak. As one local councillor comments, "Unless we put those jobs back, Oxford will be a nice place to visit, a nice place to look round the colleges, but an empty shell for anybody who is not in academia or who is not a tourist."
In her film Ann Schofield , a member of the Oxford Motor
Industry Research Project, explores the impact of the industry's decline on a community which has spent its life making cars.

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.
