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.
Sir Peter Parker , Chairman of the British Railways Board, gives the 11th in this series of annual lectures before an invited audience at the Royal Society of Arts in London.
Missing Our Connections
Tonight SIR PETER PARKER examines the relationship between
Government, Industry and Democracy and finds that we are ' missing our connections'.
He analyses Britain's industrial decline and describes the damage the politics of our democracy can cause to the sensible development of industrial policy.
He sees dangers to democracy in industrial decline, the prospect of a divided people and the creation of two nations.
He remains an optimist and produces his own ideas of how Britain could once again achieve industrial health.
Introduced by George Howard , Chairman of the BBC
Director pieter morpurco Producer JEREMY BENNErr
(Sir Peter Parker 's lecture will be published in THE LISTENER of 7 April)

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.
