Irish Unity - the Only Answer? The Panorama Debate
Presented by David Dimbleby
At the heart of all the troubles over Northern Ireland lies this question: is Ireland one country or two? At the moment, the Republic's Prime Minister, Charles Haughey , is engaged in a new diplomatic campaign to convince the British government that the only way to end the violence is to unify Ireland. Mrs Thatcher remains unconvinced. Who is right? Tonight Panorama cameras visit the Cambridge Union for a debate on the motion that ' The declared long-term aim of British policy in Ireland should be Irish unity'. Speaking in favour are Jack Lynch , Prime Minister of the Irish Republic until last year, and John Hume , leader of the Northern Irish Social and Democratic Labour Party Against will be The Rt Hon William Craig , former Minister of Home Affairs in the Stormont Government, and Conor Cruise O'Brien, former Irish cabinet minister, now editor-in-chief of the Observer.

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.
