: Twin Cities

Jonathan Glancey examines the relationships between five pairs of cities around the world. 3: Liverpool/Manchester- Broaden Your
Horizons. Located a mere 30 miles apart, the Lancashire cities of Liverpool and Manchester have been inextricably linked since the inception of the Industrial Revolution. However, their recent fortunes make a stark contrast to the industrial boom of years past.
Liverpool, once the second city of Empire, declined as shipbuilding ebbed away and has never really recovered. With its stunning Georgian terraces and classical masterpieces like
St George 's Hall, it is thought by manyto be more aesthetically pleasing than its work-a-day twin.
Manchester, on the other hand, has managed to regenerate itself with vitality and confidence. Why have these two cities, twinned by the Industrial Revolution, fared so differently and will Liverpool ever be able to catch up? Producer Jane Beresford

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.
