Nowhere to Run
"I left that night because it was my only chance. I probably would never get the chance to come downstairs again to phone," recalls an Asian teenager from Bradford, who had planned to run away from home for nearly a year.
She is one of an increasing number of 16-to 18-year-old Asian girls in Britain who are fleeingfrom parental restrictions. Some are escaping from arranged marriages, some are wantingto further their education. But there can be a high price to pay for their independence.
This first in a new series of Asian current-affairs programmes interviews some of the girls and the Bradford police, whose policy of aiding the runaways has been criticised by a variety of Asian community leaders. Executive producer Tony Moss Editor VyvSimson

: Middlemarch

With £6 million invested in the production, the BBC must have been holding its breath over reaction to its dramatisation of George Eliot 's classic. But with the series ending tonight, they can not only breathe but also let out a cheer.
The acclaim has been universal - for its integrity, for its casting and for its adaptation. The Times has described it as "all but perfect" .
It was also backed up by its viewing figures - a total of eight and a half million people watched the first episode.
On Friday at 5.30pm on BBC2 there's a programme that goes behind the scenes during The Making of Middlemarch.
February 1832: the Lydgates' marriage grows increasingly bitter with the prospect of bankruptcy. But the return of Raffles, nowa sick man, sets off a train of events which dramatically change the lives of everyone in Middlemarch.
With Judi Dench as the voice of George Eliot.

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.
