: Town Hall: The Crisis

A fly-on-the-wall documentary series that chronicles a dramatic period in the history of the Labour-controlled London Borough of Lewisham.

A total projected overspend of £11.2 million in the education budget has resulted in the biggest crisis the Labour-controlled council has ever had to deal with. June Fisher, head teacher of Catford County Girls School, complains to the school governors that as a result of a reduction in resources, class sizes will have to increase.
In Lewisham overall, 120 teaching jobs have to go.
Parents and teachers take to the streets. Hundreds of protestors storm the town hall as members of the council struggle to find cuts that will bring the budget back into line. On top of everything else, local women and children, furious at the news that play centres may be closed, occupy the central library, demanding to see the council leader, Steve Bullock.

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.
