The 20th Century Remembered


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.
by Barbara Castle with Donald MacCormick
In 1967 Harold Wilson 's Cabinet faced a serious economic crisis which led to the devaluation of the pound. Barbara Castle was in that Cabinet and she recalls the secrecy surrounding economic decisions, which meant that she and her Cabinet colleagues were often shut out from any discussion of the economic situation. In the third of four programmes she reflects on perhaps the most dramatic year of her life, when she introduced In Place of Strife, her White Paper in favour of a new legal framework for trade unions and employers. This not only divided the Cabinet but met with stiff opposition from the unions. Research MONA ADAMS VALERIE SMITH

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.
