: The Press We Deserve

The first of two programmes about our national newspapers Scoop, Scandal and Strife
There will be no war in Europe ... All nations desire peace and that includes Germany and Italy.
I think he was a terrible influence ... he made a fortune out of newspapers and at the same time he left behind him a trail of lost causes. JAMES CAMERON, journalist, In 300 years the British national press rose from a dangerous, clandestine trade to a profession in which press lords thought they wielded power over prime ministers. Did they? Or did the struggle for the freedom of the press merely end in the freedom of a few powerful proprietors to try to dictate to readers, writers and politicians what they should do? The hacks of Grub Street-17th-century publishers and pamphleteers began the fight for the freedom to print news and opinion. The executioner, prison, the pillory were waiting for them. By the 19th century it seemed that freedom had been won. The Times was among those newspapers which made Fleet Street independent and influential. Northcliffe bought it. Rothermere and Beaverbrook rose. Death was no longer the penalty, but disagreement could mean professional death. The press remained precarious. The fight now was economic and managerial. Freedom would still cost a lot. Written and narrated by PAtJL FERRIS

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.
