: Horizon

Half-way to 1984
' We were angry and a bit frightened when we found the police (above) were photographing our protest march.' (HOUSEWIFE) ' There is no doubt in my mind that dossiers are kept on the legal peaceful political activities of ordinary citizens.' (MP) This programme looks at the issues raised by recent developments in computer technology. Mass surveillance and its political misuse are a real possibility. Data banks holding dossiers on individuals are now technically feasible. There is evidence that they already exist. If you have been to hospital, your personal details are probably already on a central computer. On seeing your car, a policeman cam obtain considerable information over his radio within a couple of minutes. Careers have been drastically affected by security dossiers containing incorrect information. Under present laws there is no right of appeal. A senior police officer suggests ' This could be a political time bomb-a policeman's dream, but a citizen's nightmare', and LORD GARDINER, the for-mer Lord Chancellor, claims that if information held on computers is linked together it would not be an exaggeration to say we were ' half-way to 1984 '.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
