: NEW IDEAS IN SECONDARY EDUCATION

Eight programmes for teachers tnd parents on the changing scene in secondary schools
Introduced by DR. F. HILLIARD
4: Teaching in the Flexible School
There has been a great deal of discussion among educationists and head teachers about how to make the traditional school organisation more flexible. How can 'streaming ' of children be abolished? How can the old divisions between subjects like History and Geography. Science, and Maths be broken down? But the most vital question for most serving teachers is generally left unasked and unanswered. What is it like to be a teacher who is trained and practised in traditional school attitudes, and who is suddenly faced with a revolution in classroom practice imposed from above? Tonight an ex-grammar school teacher who became head of the geography department of a ' flexible ' comprehensive school, describes how he came successfully to modify his entire teaching methods.

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.
