: Student Choice 94

Last year, Jane Duggan had her heart set on training to become a doctor. However, when she just missed the required A-level grades she was offered a place on a course in medical biochemistry at Leicester University.
" If you can't get on the course you want, look at similar subjects," is her advice to
A-level students encountering similar turmoil. Havinga clear idea of your ambitions, being persistent and making realistic compromises are the lessons learned by Jane and other students.
With the A-level results out last Thursday this special post-exam survival guide is presented by Paul Ross. There's a free confidential helpline to dial which has instant computer access to every college vacancy in the country. The number is 0[number removed]and lines are open today from 12 noon to
10.00pm and every day until Friday (10.00am - 6.00pm).
The documentary complements Radio 1 's continuing coverage and Annie Nightingale 's Radio 4 late-night phone-ins tonight and Wednesday. Producer Mary Fourt Stereo

: Written in Blood: The Paramilitaries

Journalist Peter Taylor has followed the escalation of the Troubles since he was first posted to Northern Ireland and filmed a controversial interview with an eye-witness of Bloody Sunday. "I've watched Loyalist resistance grow, violence thrive, a whole generation denied their childhood and seen history written in blood," he says in the introduction to this film in BBC2's 25 Bloody Years season. Taylor goes back through his archive of interviews with gunmen in balaclavas and the families of their victims to produce a personal account of the rise of paramilitary violence. He talks again to both
Republicans and Loyalists to find out if - and how - their views have changed. Producer Nick O'Dwyer

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.
