14-Personnel Management
Many organisations now employ personnel officers who are largely concerned with the recruitment, training, and welfare of staff. It is a job that can make many varied demands on those who take it up-not the least being the need to mix as easily with the skilled craftsman as with the managing director.

The Ordinary Devoted Mother and her Children
I-Some Occasions for Saying ' No '
Several mothers of babies and toddlers recorded, unrehearsed, conversations among themselves about problems of upbringing. They suggested the BBC might supply on the air some background of theory to help in dealing with typical situations. For example, when and how often do you say No ' to your child? Are your children ever jealous of each other? Do you find anything irksome about your work in the home?
This programme includes part of the mothers' conversation, and some comments on it by a paediatrician who is also a children's psychiatrist.

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.
