And You, Arnold A comedy by DAVID FITZSIMMONS with Reginald Marsh and John Baddeley
Water polo isn't what It used to be. As referee, Joe feels it his task to stamp out dirty play. The result ... ' One match you were refereeing ended with only two goal-keepers left lobbing the ball the full length of the pool.' Perhaps Joe's zeal is too great.

: ' ... Patriotism Is Not Enough'

- a memory of Edith Cavell
EDITH CAVELL was shot at dawn in Brussels by the Germans on 12 October 1915. As leader of an underground organisation she helped several hundred Allied soldiers to escape from under the very eyes of the Germans and faced her inevitable capture, imprisonment, trial and execution with stoicism.
ROWLAND RYDER. author of a recent biography of Cavell, and RUTH HELLYER , MILLICENT BATTRUM and ELIZABETH WILKINS , three of the nurses who worked with her, tell her story and of the execution which shocked even the Kaiser.
Edith Cavell 's journals and letters read by JILL BALCON. Producer JOHN KNIGHT

: Analysis

The Democrats and the White House
Watergate and last year's Congressional Elections appeared to leave the Democrats as the major party in the United States but, as the campaign for the Presidential nomination gets under way. President Ford seems to be firmly in the driving seat. With potential candidates as different as Hubert Humphrey and George Wallace can the Democrats translate their success in getting Congressional votes into Presidential votes? Is a discernible platform emerging? Gerald Priestland has been back to the United States talking to leading Democrats and testing the temperature of American political opinion.

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.
