The Little Ship
'My God, mate, where did you put 'em?'
Ramsgate Harbour, 1 June 1940 This is the story of a motor yacht called Sundowner. She was commissioned in 1912, the same year as the Titanic, but their histories were bound together by much more than a common birthdate.
Patrick Stenson follows the maritime fortunes of this 60-foot craft through two world wars, love, neglect and 75 years of adventure to her final and honourable retirement last summer.

Wish You Were Her?
Screen heroines of the 1980s provide various role models - chic professional, oddball seductress and promiscuous schoolgirl. But for all the updating, do they represent a truer portrait of women now than in the early days of Hollywood, or is it just a case of new stereotypes for old?

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.
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.
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.
