: The Natural World

The Ghosts of Ruby
Popular images of the American Wild West of the last century generally populate it with grizzled gunfighters involved in barroom free-for-alls. But sharing that landscape with the human animals were a host of the natural world's representatives.
Nestling between hills shot through with seams of gold, Ruby, Arizona, was just such a town, a noisy, bustling mining community. As it mushroomed in size, though, the wildlife dwindled. The highly venomous black widow spider no longer lurked in the dark recesses of outdoortoilets, while lesser known species such as the cacomistles, the killdeers and the killer-mice, whose presence predated human invasion, were evicted.
Now things have turned full circle.
As soon as the mineral deposits were all harvested to exhaustion, the townspeople drifted away, leaving
Ruby a ghost town - and allowing the wildlife to make a comeback.

: The New Jerusalem

Second of a four-part series, narrated by Robert Lindsay , which marks 50 years of the often troubled evolution of the Welfare State as it endeavoured to tackle and overcome the four principal social concerns of housing, education, health and poverty.
A Place in the Class. The early proponents of the Welfare State dreamed of creating a classless society through free schoolingfor all. Even before the end of the war, education minister R A Butlerwas the architect of a bill promising universal secondary education at no cost. The quality of that schooling was a different matter. Pupils who passed the II-plus examination went to grammar schools but children whodidn'twere relegated to secondary moderns and inevitably regarded as failures. In response to disaffection from the middle classes, who didn't want their children stigmatised, the Labour Party of the 1960s introduced the comprehensive system. But it too has had its critics. "Parental choice" has become the fashion of the nineties.
But what of the classless society?
Using archive footage of one Liverpool school which began as a grammar school and made the change into a comprehensive, this programme traces the unresolved arguments over how best to educate our children.

: Myths and Memories of World War II

The third in a four-part series presented by Peter Taylor in which radical stances about the Second
Wortd War are proposed and debated.
Dr Nick Tiratsoo , social historian at the London School of Economics, argues that the British did not pull together on the Home Front. He maintainsthatthe cosy image of a society wholly united against the Nazis is a myth, the product of skilfully manipulated propaganda disguising escalating social conflicts. Instead, Tiratsoo paints a picture of a divided society in which the rich were better protected than the panic-stricken poor who were forced to face the Blitz with inadequate shelters. Those who lived through the war, together with historians, challenge and debate this controversial thesis.

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.
