: Real Lives

At the Edge of the Union
The story of two dedicated men prepared to use almost any means to ensure that their view prevails.
The city of Londonderry, or Derry is where the present Northern Ireland Troubles began 16 years ago. It is a polarised city, with public support having grown for the extremes of both sides. This film looks at those extremes through the eyes of two men. Both are young, working-class, teetotal and church-going; both are elected representatives of their communities.
The first,
Martin McGuinness , is accused by some of being the IRA's present Chief of Staff, responsible for bombing the heart out of the city in the 1970s Yet today he stands as a legitimate politician, able to attract 10,000 votes for Sinn Fein. The second, Gregory Campbell , is a hardline
Loyalist. He needs constant armed police protection following a bomb attempt on his life last year. Campbell is a target because of his outspoken views; a strong advocate of a shoot-to-kill policy against the IRA.

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.
