: The Editors

Presented by George Scott
Recent closed-shop legislation raised fears for the freedom of the Press. It also sharpened the long-standing and sometimes bitter rivalry between the two unions that represent British journalists. The NATIONAL UNION OF JOURNALISTS, with 29,500 members, is the dominant union, determined to increase its strength through the closed shop. But critics fear the monopoly power of a single union, which they claim is unduly influenced by its left wing.
The INSTITUTE OF JOURNALISTS, with only 2,500 members, among them recent defectors from the NUJ, is described by its critics as a ' bosses' undon' of strike breakers and blacklegs which constantly undermines the effectiveness of its rival.
John Clare reports on film from the NUJ's annual conference and from the offices of The Barnsley Chronicle and The Daily Telegraph, scenes of recent inter-union conflict.

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.
