What Kind of Spoon Have I? by JOHN CHAMBERS
Certainly not a silver spoon in the case of Kevin Parkinson , a lad born on the Burrows
Estate. However, when he meets Giles Canon he realises that even a silver spoon can have its drawbacks. The difference is that for

: A Portrait of Brick Lane

The Spitalfields area of Tower Hamlets, Just east of the City of London, is one of the poorest and most highly populated areas In the country.
For centuries the main thoroughfare, Brick Lane , and the surrounding streets have been a magnet for migrants from all over the world - the Huguenots from France, the Jews from Russia and Eastern
Europe, and lately the Bangladeshis. This is the story of the area told by historian
William J. Fishman along with the voices of the local community.

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.
