: Person to Person: 1: Mrs Mary Whitehouse

In a new series of special profiles David Dimbleby talks to eight well-known men and women who have set out to change the world in which they live.

'We have never been in such a sex-obsessed society!'- the firm belief of Mrs Mary Whitehouse who describes herself as an ordinary woman just doing an 'extraordinary job'. This formidable campaigner against sex and violence in the media reveals how she has arrived at her present position. She gives insights into her emotions, her first loves, and private struggles, as well as discussing her public role.

: Millennium of Tynwald

A Thousand Years of History
Today Her Majesty The Queen, in her capacity as Lord of Man, presided over the ancient Court of Tynwald, accompanied by HRH
The Duke of Edinburgh.
When the Vikings settled on the Isle of Man they set up a 'Parliament Field' or in Norse, 'Thing-
Völlr' or 'Tynwald'. The Manx
Parliament is directly derived from this Assembly and legislates for the Island. The Acts of Tynwald which have been given the Royal Assent in the previous year are proclaimed to the people at the open-air assembly on Tynwald Hill at St John's.
But not all is routine, as the neoDle of the island have the traditional right to present their grievances at this assembly, and sometimes they do!

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.
