Computers and Computing
With the current growth of the personal computer industry estimated at 40 to 50 per cent per annum, computers are no longer remote monolithic machines. School children write their own programs. But If you're over school age, where do you start? What's the best type of machine to buy? How much are computers continuing to change? How does British computer technology compare with the rest of the world's? And what effects will computers have on our lives?
David Tebbutt, writer and director of a British software publishing company, and Martin Banks, journalist specialising in the personal computer industry join Sue MacGregor to answer your questions. Produced by the Woman's Hour Unit

: Bon Voyage-Mauvais Sejour

Compiled by PATRICK POLLARD from The Traveller's
Conversational Handbook by MADAME DE GENLIS , first published in four languages in 1804
Madame de Genlls wrote it for those rich and reckless enough to go on the Grand Tour of Europe. But her Handbook is not simplyanancestorofthe modern tourist's phrase-book. She wrote dialogue to cover any eventuality in early 19th-century travel. It is amusing and absurd - but then so is the predicament of any traveller who cannot speak the language.

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.
