Many people find it Impossible to lose weight. ' I've only got to look at a cream bun to put on 21bs ' says the fat lady. Frequently fat children become gross adults or at best people continually fighting the battle of the bulge. Why is this?

Twenty years ago the undisputed ruler of the shop floor in industry was the foreman. Nowadays much of his power and prestige has passed to the workers' representative, the shop steward. Yet the foreman still remains the front line of management, coping not only with labour problems but also with technological advances.
Bob Houlton has been talking to some of these forgotten men - and women - of industry. Producer STANLEY WILLIAMSON (from Manchester)

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.
