The Richard Dimbleby Lecture: Garret FitzGerald


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.
Garret FitzGerald, TD, former Taoiseach (Prime Minister) of Ireland, gives the tenth in this annual series of lectures before an invited audience at the Royal Society of Arts in London.

Tonight Garret FitzGerald examines one of the most intractable political dilemmas of our time-the Irish problem, or, perhaps more accurately, the Irish-British problem. He traces the complex senses of identity which lie behind the two traditions in Ireland. He asks how political structures can be devised in Ireland and between Ireland and Britain, to express and safeguard these identities. And he offers challenging and positive proposals for an evolution towards a new Ireland. Introduced by George Howard
Chairman of the BBC
(An edited version of this lecture will be printed in THE LISTENER dated 27 May)


Introduced By: George Howard
Unknown: Pieter Morpurgo
Unknown: Edward Mirzoeff

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.
