Open to Question


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.
The Sunday Times called it 'the most revealing discussion programme on television'.
In this new series, young people from all over Britain will question Ian Botham ,
King Hussein of Jordan and Vice-President
Walter Mondale of the USA, as well as home-based politicians Ted Heath and Dennis Healey.
Tonight: is Militant a thorn in the flesh of Labour's body politic - or an advocate of genuine, caring, left-wing socialism?
Derek Hatton of Liverpool and John Macreadie of the CPSA, espouse the Militant cause. Tonight they are Open to Question.

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.
