: News Headlines; followed by Robert McKenzie's Personal Choice

Professor Raymond Aron of the University of Paris
Here Robert McKenzie introduces his distinguished guest:

"What has gone wrong with Franco-British relations? They are now probably at the lowest ebb they have been for at least a generation.

Is this solely the fault of President de Gaulle as the popular press sometimes seems to imply? Or is there a fundamental conflict of interest, of temperament, and of goals between the two countries?

In Personal Choice today there will be an opportunity to hear the opinions of one of the most astute and stimulating Frenchmen of our day. Raymond Aron, who has lived in Britain and knows this country well, is both an outstanding figure in the intellectual world of Paris and a brilliant journalist.

He is Professor of Sociology in the University of Paris and the author of a dozen books, including a study of the influence of Communism on French intellectuals, a number of treatises on sociological and political theory, and most recently, a major work on international relations.

Despite his formidable academic accomplishments, Professor Aron is by no means an ivory-towered intellectual. He writes a column of personal comment on current political and economic issues two or three times a week in the Paris daily, Le Figaro.

His views are said more often than not to exasperate the General. Certainly Aron is not a Gaullist. Although he probably would no dissent from the view that "every Frenchman is at some moments touched by Gaullism."

He is in many ways ideally suited to the perplexing task of explaining President de Gaulle and Gaullism to a British audience and analysing the prospects in the longer run of our being admitted to Europe."

: Alec Guinness and Jack Hawkins in THE PRISONER

with Wilfrid Lawson , Kenneth Griffith
Based on the play by BRIDGET BOLAND
Produced by VIVIAN A. Cox
In an unnamed totalitarian state somewhere in Europe, a Cardinal, who during the war played an important part as a resistance leader, has now become an embarrassment to the state. He is arrested, charged with high treason, then put in the hands of the state interrogator. The latter believes that a confession can only be achieved by psychological means and that torture merely hardens a strong man's determination to remain silent.
Alec Guinness repeats his superbly judged stage characterisation-the film is adapted from a play-and Jack Hawkins , an actor not usually called on to sustain a part as subtle, is also excellent.
As Derek Hill said in his review, The Prisoner is the most thought-provoking and adult film Britain has dared to make for far too long a time.'

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.
