1—A Record is Broken
There is something in man that drives him to be the first, the fastest, to climb higher or dive deeper, to do something better than anyone else. Some of the greatest record-breakers of this century talk about how they did it-and why.

The Police and the Public
A discussion by The Rt. Hon. J. Chuter Ede, M.P .
Home Secretary from 1945-1951
Mrs. Hilary Halpin
A London Justice of the Peace
Colonel Eric St. Johnston
Chief Constable for Lancashire with Frank Byers In the chair
Members of the Police Force have been in the headlines on several occasions during the last few years when charges of violence, intimidation, or corruption have been made against them. On the other hand many problems such as the increase in road traffic and in hooliganism press on the police. Is there any cause for public anxiety and can anything be done to improve the conditions in which the police work?
The programme opens with recordings of the views of people from many parts of the country.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
