The Third Man
Congressman John Anderson is the third man in the 1980 race for the White House. Six months ago his rating in the opinion polls was zero. Today it stands at around 25 per cent, posing a serious threat to the main contenders CARTER and REAOAN.
Anderson's dramatic and unexpected rise in the opinion polls stems from the Americans' increasing disillusionment with their plight. They are attracted to Anderson's apparently honest answers to America's pressing problems. The prospect of a President Anderson, unthinkable a few months ago, is no longer dismissed as pure fantasy.
Peter Taylor reports that if Anderson's popularity continues to increase, his campaign as an independent may have a profound effect on the November election. Carter and Reagan could be denied an outright majority and the election would depend on the Congress for the first time in 150 years.

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.
