Heart of the Matter

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.
Gimme Shelter
Following the government's tightening of the rules on immigration, the number of people seeking asylum in this country has dropped significantly. While some believe that the rules do notgo far enough and the door on asylum seekers should be shut altogether, others are concerned that in tryingto stop "bogus" applicants, Britain is notfulfilling its moral obligation to large numbers of genuine cases.
Joan Bakewell hosts a discussion with a panel that includes Ugandan-born writer Yasmin Alibhai-Brown and Spectator columnist Bruce Anderson. Executive producer John Drury ; Series editor
Anne Reevell NOTE: as Heart of the Matter is topical and likely to react to events in the news, its subject matter may change

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.
