: Night Waves

Twenty years after the long and bitter struggles of the Miners' Strike, Paul Allen examines what has replaced the tight-knit communities and culture of Britain's pit villages. He journeys to Grimethorpe in south Yorkshire, the once vibrant colliery that now stands empty. The famous colliery band still survives, but have other local mining traditions survived? And as the reality of mining recedes, Allen asks what the spirit of the people is today. Producer Julian May

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.
