: WHICKER'S WORLD

After all, our readers are human beings ...
Alan Whicker
looks at
TWO SIDES OF FLEET STREET
As a nation, we have an enormous appetite for newsprint: we read more, per head, than any country in the world. Each day newspapers exert their influences on our minds; the personalities of a handful of proprietors and editors help shape our opinions and attitudes.
Of our nine national dailies perhaps the two most influential are at opposite ends of the scale: Cecil King 's Daily Mirror, read by more than a quarter of the population
.. Lord Thomson's Times, read by everyone who ' matters' ... Yet in today's television-educated age, popular and quality papers draw closer together.
What do they say about their role, their power, their influence -the men on the inside who decide what you read? What are they like, what do they think—the men behind the headlines?

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.
