: Say it in English, Only Louder

The Decline of Foreign Language Teaching in our Schools It used to be said in the days of the classic Grand Tour that if the travelling Englishman only proclaimed his desires loudly enough, the natives were bound to get his meaning We've come a long way from there. National boundaries have dwindled. overseas trade is essential for economic survival. tnurism is now a mass industry Superficially the advantages of learning a foreign language have never been more apparent; yet over the past decade, by some strange streak of insular perversity. modern languages have steadily been losing ground in British schools and universities.
In tonight's programme, Erik de Mauny talks to a number of teachers and lecturers, bankers and industrialists, in an effort to find out why - and the Secretary of State for Education, The Rt Hon Mrs Shirley Williams, MP. gives her own view of the problem.

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.
