What Are We Here For, Brothers?

Synopsis

We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
A six-part series
1: The Troubled Brotherhood On the face of it, the British trade union movement is in a mess. Its membership is failing, it is under attack from the Government, and it's short of money. The question posed by a TUC General Secretary 20 years ago - what are we here for? - is being asked today with even greater urgency. Peter Paterson asks whether 19th-century ideals and structures are relevant to the problems facing the unions in 1984, and looks at the changes some of them are now making. Music performed by SAM RICHARDS and TISH STUBBS Producer MARGARET BUDY
Series editor CAROLINE MILUNGTON ● HELPLINES: page 62

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.
