Imagine you're a spider and you've got to construct a web high up between the branches of a tree. In human terms it could be the same as a person on top of Nelson's Column building a monster spider web right across Trafalgar Square. And that's exactly what Terry attempts to do in today's programme to show the complex engineering that goes into an ordinary spider's web.

Three-day weeks, strikes and the lights going out - the winter of 1973-4 finally spurs Hugh into political action. But is his new-found zeal going to be enough for the unexpected demands the new life makes of him? The play was first produced at the Bush Theatre, London, in 1980.
In the last of three topical debates Robin Day asks Lord Searman and Professor Ronald Dworkin
How should we attack racial disadvantage - should there be reverse discrimination?
Last summer's riots brought new urgency to the question of racial disadvantage in Britain. In his report on the Brixton disorders, Lord Scarman recommended that ' ethnic minorities should enjoy for a time positive discrimination in their favour.' But Lord Searman rejected what is called 'reverse discrimination for example quotas giving special advantage to ethnic minority members in competing with whites. Advocates of reverse discrimination believe that quotas and other special measures in favour of blacks should be tried in order to reduce racial tension. That is the view of Professor Dworkin arguing from the American experience.

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.
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.
