Sixth-formers of Northgate High School Ipswich, Suffolk discuss the subject of Films and ask such questions as: What makes a good film? What makes a film an Oscar-winner? Is there too much sex and violence in the films which are seen generally today? What aspects decide if a film is rated an 'AA' or an 'X'?
Are the guidelines used for rating too lenient or too harsh for today's society?
Andy Peebles referees Radio 1's open forum - an opportunity for schools and clubs to choose a subject, provide a panel and even pick the music. Add a couple of invited 'experts', and the result is an hour's uninhibited argument interspersed with the debut performances of seven young DJS.
If you, your school or club have strong views on any subject that needs a good airing, contact: Talkabout, BBC Radio 1, [address removed]
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.
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.
