from 9.20 Welfare at Work
Safety and health are accepted as essential, but is enough attention given to the personnel and personal aspects of work? Are the frequently hot and noisy surroundings in factories, workshops and canteens acceptable today? Should the monotony of so many production line jobs be relieved by more tea-breaks or more musak? Is enough consideration given to women at work - should creches be compulsory, for example?
Put your views and questions to Dr Peter Taylor , Chief Medical Officer, the Post Office, and Ethel Chipchase , secretary of the TUC Women's Advisory Committee
In the chair Sue MacGregor Produced by the Woman's Hour Unit

: The Last Secret

The words of Alexander Solzh enitsyn to describe the forced repatriation of about 2 million Soviet and former Russian citizens to the USSR in 1945. Nicholas Bethell , in tonight's programme, deals with one such group of Cossacks who ended the war in the Drau Valley in Austria. They hoped to stay there and believed that the British troops would let them.
But an agreement had been made with Stalin and so they were driven at bayonet point on to lorries and railway trucks and taken to labour camps and firing squads in the Soviet Union.

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.
