A series of seven programmes on regional development in the United Kingdom 4: Regional face-lift
For regional development policies to work, the various regions must be prepared to help themselves and not expect the long arm of Whitehall to do it all for them. Already there are a number of regional associations at work trying to attract new industry, trying to give the surroundings a face-lift.

Robert E. Lee. who evoked admira. tion even from so sharp a critic of great men as Lord Acton, looks at us with the traditionalist race of American history. As gentleman, as professional. as democrat. he is a giant incarnation of the common decencies and a startling exception to the familiar pattern of the ' demonic ' great man.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
