Morning Story

A Fine Turn of Speed by MEG SEATON
Read by Carleton Hobbs
' Good healthy life inside,' said Spider. ' No dissipations.... You should see me in the exercise yard. The screws have bets on my time.'
Producer BARBARA CROWTHER

Man Alive

The Turn of the Screw
' If rates go on increasing like this,' calculated a ratepayer at a meeting with his local authority, ' the £130 I paid in 1974 will be £1,000 by 1978.' Last spring, local government was reorganised: hundreds of councils were swept away and a rash of new names appeared on the map.
Jack Pizzey and a Man Alive team went to one of these new creations, Kirklees - made up from Huddersfield, Batley, Dewsbury and other parts of the West Riding - to find out where the money goes and why so many ratepayers think it's wasted.
Desmond Wilcox brings the ratepayers and the rate spenders together in the studio to ask whether there's a fairer way of paying for all the things local government provides.

In Repertory

Anthony Besch
' One of the most satisfactory things about working in opera Is the wide contrast of styles and periods of music which may come my way in any one year,' says opera producer ANTHONY BESCH. He discusses and Illustrates four operas from his recent repertory: Mozart's Cost fan tutte, Britten's The Turn of the Screw, Szymanowski's King Roger and Mozart's La clemenza di Tito. gramophone records

Horizon: Not the Cheapest But the Best

Leonard Rossiter investigates a Victorian phenomenon: Isambard Kingdom Brunel (1806-1859)
At the age of 20, Brunel was engineer in charge of the Thames Tunnel, the first tunnel ever driven under a river, now used by the Underground. At 27 he designed the Great Western Railway, completed from London to Bristol when he was 35. He also built the first transatlantic steam-ship, the first screw-propelled liner, and the Great Eastern, each in turn by far the largest ships to sail the seas.
While he was directing his great works, Brunel confided his private doubts and ambitions to secret journals. Leonard Rossiter, using many unpublished letters and diaries, plays a dual role, as Brunel himself, and as narrator visiting the scenes of Brunel's triumphs.

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.
