Duncan Keyes - as he is called for the purposes of this programme - is 35. He lives with a beautiful girl in a large flat in Chelsea, drives a powerful sports car, and earns 13,000 a year as a copywriter. But he has reached a point in his career when he must take the next step up the ladder or count himself a failure.
In this programme he talks with exceptional frankness about the various factors in his professional and his private life which could make or break him; and his family, his colleagues and his friends add their own acid and affectionate comments. The result is a vivid and revealing picture of Duncan himself and of the unrelenting world he inhabits. Compiled and produced by ANNE OWEN (from Birmingham)(Radio Times People: page 5)

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.
