Congratulations!
Having a baby is a happy event - if the planning and preparation are right.
Bernard Jackson explores the way in which parents-to-be prepare for the process of childbirth; have more say in the way and the place their babies are to be born; and the subsequent changes in family life which can affect the future happiness of both parents and children.

: The National Youth Theatre Comes of Age

This year is the 21st birthday of the National Youth Theatre, which has grown from humble beginnings, as a means of keeping the boys of Alleyn's School busy in their school holidays, to a world-famous drama company, whose productions have been seen all over Europe.
In this birthday tribute Michael Croft , its founder and director, tells the story of the last 21 years. He and many members past and present talk to play-wright Barrie Keeffe , himself a former member and author of several of its successes.

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.
