: Play: The Flawed Man

by JAMES DOUGLAS with Barry Foster as Bruce Miller
Will television be allowed to go the way of the tabloid press?
This play, set in Fleet Street in the very near future, fantasises on the implications of allowing newspaper columnists like Percy Greer to turn TV chat shows into gladiatorial contests - of allowing unscrupulous men of power to create a new form of blood sport, where the victims are torn to pieces for the delight of the masses.
Percy Greer : 'I will turn your studio into a velvet abattoir.'
Other parts played by LINDA GARDNER and ANN RYE
Television show theme music composed by ROGER LIMB of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop Directed by SUSAN HOGG BBC Manchester. Stereo
(Re-broadcast next Saturday)

: A Book at Bedtime

The Child in Time by IAN MCEWAN abridged in ten episodes by DAVID BUCK
Read by Norman Jones (1) Stephen Lewis is a rich and famous writer of children's books. One day he experiences the cruellest loss that any parent can withstand - his own 3-year-old daughter is abducted in a supermarket. Set in the not-too-distant future, where beggars are licensed and parents instructed that childhood is a disease to be treated with discipline, this is both a moving and cautionary parable by one of Britain's best contemporary writers. Producer STUART KERR

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.
