: Newseries Parent Power

Schools are substitute parents for about 12,000 hours of your child's life. In this series of eight programmes Maureen O'Connor and Barry Turner (with your help) plot the crisis points of school days and arm you to make the best decisions along the way.
They tackle the question of how much control you have over what happens to your child in and out of school, the limits of parental choice, what you can expect from education, when and how to exert your rights. How much do end results depend on you, and how much on schools?
Parents' comments, questions. criticisms and contributions are a vital part of each 25-minute magazine.

'I don't want to get slung out when I'm too old. Pubs and boutiques. A nice little player-manager's job, non-League at first if necessary and then the managers' circuit. It's not a big ambition, but it won't come easy to the stormy petrel of English soccer.'

: Analysis

What are We Here for, Brothers?
Presented by Mary Goldring
The power and position of trade unions in Britain have increased dramatically in recent years. Union leaders now exercise a decisive influence on government policies and enjoy a special relationship with ministers. How far has all this changed the role of the trade unions? Are the men who run the unions losing touch with their membership on the shopfloor? Will recent changes at the top of the union leadership lead to any change of direction or purpose?

: An Actor in his Time

Sir John Gielgud , in the second of 11 programmes, talks to JOHN MILLER about his life in the theatre.
2: Why Dont I Go On The Stager
' I was then 17 - and I went to Lady Benson's little school, which was close to my grandmother's house in Cromwell Road, and recited there and got the scholarship and spent a year there and I played several important parts, including bits of Hamlet and Sir Peter Teazle ; and I seemed to be getting on rather well there, although she thought me rather mannered and rather effeminate - which I was, and very conceited - which I also was, so I was put in my place a bit. She was an admirable teacher and a very sort of pungent, witty woman, not a good actress herself. She used to come and do the Ophelia mad scene in a large Edwardian hat.'

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.
