The Lords of Discipline


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.
A disturbing evocation of institutionalised bigotry from director Franc Roddam. Carolina Military Institute, 1964: a West
Point-style academy where the all-white tradition of harsh discipline and violent humiliation has festered for more than a century. A secret society called "the Ten" ensures that none but the like-minded survive. But this year the Institute has taken on its first black cadet, and maverick senior Will McLean is assigned the dangerous task of keeping him both in the academy - and alive.

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.
