: The 20th Century Remembered

In the last of four interviews in this series, The Rt Hon Sir Harold Wilson , mp, talks to Anthony King , Professor of Government at Essex University, about the last phase in his political career.
Sir Harold recalls his period in opposition in the early 70s; recounts the Labour Party's shift to the Left and the tactics he used to deal with it; explains how and why he changed his views towards the Common Market and why he decided to hold a referendum; and recalls the February 1974 election that led to his return to power.
He also tells why he made Tony Benn his Industry Secretary after Labour's election victory in 1974 and why he decided to remove him one year later. And talks, too, about his sudden resignation from the Premiership and the Leadership of the Labour Party in 1976. Production assistant MONA ADAMS Film editor ALAN MARTIN Producer JAMES HOGAN

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.
