At the end of three weeks we thought we knew it all. They gave us six days' holiday, and on the seventh we arrived back at the depot: Nanette who was rich. Emma who was bossy, and Charity who was nothing in particular but probably the most agreeable of the three. Our kitbags were stuffed with clean shirts, our hearts were fixed on the peculiar glory of becoming accomplished canal boaters.

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.
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.
