: Tuesday Call: [number removed]

from 9.20 am Fresh Starts
Redundancies, lay-offs, and unemployment figures are everyday news affecting old and young alike. For many, the problem now is how to make a second start in another job or even a new career.
What sort of employment is available in different parts of the country? Can a man or woman over 50 hope for a new career? What chance has a redundant junior executive of getting a similar position? What are the prospects of another job after retirement? What sort of re-training schemes are available? And how are employers helping?
In the studio to answer your questions and near about your own experiences will be Margaret Korving, author of two books on second careers, Out of the Rut and Happy Return, and Jim Davidson of the Training Services Agency.
In the Chair Sue MacGregor
Produced by the Woman's Hour Unit

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
