Police Powers

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.
Third of six films on the police and the public. Ruling the Streets
The Public Order Act 1986 gave police sweeping new powers over any street gathering. Police say they have to balance the rights of protestors with those of the community at large. But there are fears that the Act - backed by sophisticated riot training and equipment - could undermine basic civil rights and could be used by police to remove anyone they don't like from the streets.
The film looks at the policing of the anti-Alton Bill march in London and the anti-apartheid picket of the South African Embassy and at the case of a group of young people arrested while waiting for a bus.

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.
