: ALFIE ELKINS AND HIS LITTLE LIFE

by BILL NAUGHTON with Bill Owen
After the first broadcast of Alfie Elkins earlier this month, some of the critics wrote: This was proper radio..... In one of the best bits of acting I have ever heard. Bill Owen juts the man through the words, stabbing the Cockney sentences through endless cigarette butts (Sunday Telegraph). This is, as the title makes plain, a ' little life,' but it was a brilliant radio portrait (Glasgow Herald).
Production by DOUGLAS CLEVERDON

: A PROBLEM OF GUARANTEES

The Europeans in Algeria
A discussion
Can the 1,000,000 French-speaking Europeans be given, and will they accept, effective guarantees under which they could live in an independent Algeria? Some of the difficulties involved in attempts to answer those questions are discussed in this conversation between two journalists who have spent much time in Algeria, HENRI de TURENNE of France-Soir and PETER RALEIGH of the BBC.
Their discussion is introduced by JAMES JOLL , Fellow of St. Antony's College, Oxford, who places the problem in its historical perspective.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
