All Those in Favour
As the TUC celebrates its 125th anniversary, it will also be pondering the events of the past 14 years during which the Conservatives have passed a succession of laws weakening or removing trade union rights.
In Sheffield Doug Low and Bill McDonnell trace the effects of what they see as a return to
Victorian values. During these 14 years, they claim, Sheffield has been transformed from a prosperous city with a skilled, well-paid, unionised workforce into a low-skilled, low-paid, poorly unionised area, with unemployment growing from 11, 000 to 48,000. Their argument is that in such a situation a strong trade union movement is more necessary than ever.
Prunella Scales ,
Timothy West and Eric Richard contribute readings from the archives of the trade union movement.

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.
