: The Class of 84

A Reunion
A year ago Class 5R of Lawnswood Comprehensive
School in Leeds were receiving exam results. As school-leavers they were worried about jobs, about money and about becoming adults. In a special series in the You and Yours programme over the last 12 months, Chris Hawksworth has watched their progress - some have found jobs, others have found themselves homeless, and one has become a parent. Now he brings events up-to-date with a reunion for The Class of 84. Producer BILL MORRIS

A portrait of Sir Hamilton Harty
The fifth of six programmes about great British conductors, compiled and written by BRYAN CRIMP
Narrated by John Rowe
Sir Hamilton Harty was an exact contemporary of Sir Thomas Beecham and in the opinion of many no less distinguished as a musician. But today he is largely forgotten and his few recordings are mostly on worn 78s. He was an ardent champion of Berlioz and it was Harty who conducted the premiere performances of Walton's First Symphony.

Advance Warning
In order to carry out essential maintenance work, the Droitwich Transmitter will be switched off next
Wednesday 4 September.
There will be no medium wave transmission on Radios 1,2 and 3 in the Midlands, and no long wave transmission on Radio 4 in the whole of England and Wales.
VHF/FM transmissions will continue as usual, so don't panic if your radio is silent - just switch to VHF/FM, if it is available to you. This of course always enhances your listening, since programmes can be heard in stereo.
Shipping forecasts - normally transmitted on Radio 4 long wave - will be broadcast by Coastal Radio stations and BBC Local Radio stations.








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.
