The State of Democracy

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.
Presented by Jonathan Dimbleby
2: The Price of Freedom
In Britain we believe we are free citizens, but have no guaranteed rights. When should we let the state limit our freedom? Conor Gearty of Cambridge University argues that the state is failing to protect our civil liberties, while David Starkey of the London School of Economics believes that a strong executive has acted to increase freedom. Jonathan Dimbleby asks both to assess the balance of power between the citizen and the state.

The State of Democracy

BBC Two England, 5 July 1989 20.30






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.
