Warwick Stanley Ellis , John Grundy and Dr Juliet Barker follow the bear - and the ragged staff - to the town which boasts 'the finest medieval castle in England'. In a programme which spans the centuries, they tackle the ex-stunt man, turned red knight; learn how Victorians did the family wash; and view the future from the artificial hills of Warwick's new technology park. The bear and the ragged staff? That was the emblem of the Earls of Warwick - since adopted by the town.

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.
