: Screen Two: Criminal

Teenager Simon Willerton's suicide in 1990 brought to six the number of young prisoners who hanged themselves in British prisons in just over six months. It prompted a public debate over conditions in remand prisons and Armley in particular, where overcrowding had reached such a level that prison officers refused to admit any new inmates.
Simon faced a burglary charge over the theft of a hot-water bottle from an unoccupied flat. Less a hardened criminal than an immature, gawky teenager who never fitted in, Simon's tragic death inspired writer Vincent O'Connell and director Corin Campbell-Hill to tell his story.
Simon is played by Hull teenager, Paul Popplewell, whose credits include theatre versions of Grease and The Rocky Horror Show.

: Rem Koolhaas: Building the 21st Century

Dutch-born architect Rem
Koolhaas is a neo-modernist who made his reputation with theoretical essays on the secret life of the city. These were Utopian visions that could never be built, but surprisingly he is now one of the hottest properties in architecture with commissions all over the world. To find out why, this Late Show special travels to Rotterdam, Amsterdam and Lille. In Lille, at one of Europe's major hubs where cross-channel traffic branches off to Paris or Brussels, Koolhaas has been appointed master architect for a massive new urban development, a project now under construction by a team of 20 architects under his leadership.

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.
