with David Dimbleby Starting with the News Summary
The weekly look at what matters in politics. Home Secretary
The RtHon Douglas Hurd , mp, the minister responsible for law and order, talks to David Dimbleby in his first major interview since taking over one of Whitehall's most difficult and controversial departments in September. The programme includes a film report from
Michael Cockerell showing the vast range of problems facing all Home Secretaries: prisons, police, criminal justice, immigration, drugs, telephone tapping, experiments on animals, bingo and broadcasting.
Within days of taking office Mr Hurd soon found out for himself, with the riots of Handsworth, Brixton and Tottenham, the truth of one former Home Secretary's remark 'the corridors of the Home Office are paved with dynamite'.

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.
