: Network

Presented by Anna Ford with Craig Charles
Can television be justly accused of supplying the 'oxygen of publicity' to terrorism? Or is it an easy scapegoat?
Tonight's Network assesses the dilemmas terrorism poses for television, particularly in recent weeks during the controversy over the RUC's request for film of the Milltown and Andersonstown murders and the mass media pursuit of the hijacked
Kuwaiti airliner around the Middle East. Viewers and some of the broadcasters involved in the decisions such events dictate will debate the issues, following a film made by Michael Yardley , a freelance writer and photographer specialising in terrorism and security. 'Terrorism may make dramatic TV, but, apart from providing propaganda for fanatical groups who have abandoned reason along with their doubts, it also turns the bombarded viewer into a psychological casualty.'

: Requiem for a Railway: 2: A Job for Life?

'What's happening now is that a few people in power are robbing this country of our natural heritage - oil, coal, railways, national health, everything.'

In 1986 the historic Swindon Workshops, the heart of Brunel's Great Western
Railway, joined the growing list of closed factories. Once Swindon's products were world famous, its 14,000 employees justly proud of their skills. But, having accepted massive redundancies and reorganisation in the long fight to save their works, most survivors had to join the dole queues.
Just before closure was announced, Peter Brown visited Swindon to see what survived of the old GWR spirit. Later he returned to find a bitter and disillusioned workforce. (R)

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.
