: Shall We Have a King?

(Wales: see Variations)
When the Founding Fathers of America could not agree about the idea of having a president, one said, in despair, ' Shall we have a king? .. Instead, while writing the Constitution they created a unique executive office, but an office which some Americans feel has now become too powerful, the president too much the absolute monarch.
As the second year of President, Nixon's second term begins, and at the end of the worst year in the history of the presidency, Robert MacNeil asks: what should America do now? This two-part debate comes from Independence Hall, Philadelphia, the historic debating chamber where the Constitution was written in 1787. The Writing: Actors playing George Washington , Benjamin Franklin and others, re-enact parts of the Constitutional Convention: how they tried to ensure, for example, that the president's integrity and credibility were above reproach.
The ' He-writing ': Politicians, historians and lawyers discuss with ROBERT MACNEIL if, and if so how, the system needs changing.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
