Follow My Leader
Halfway to the next election, are the Conservatives beginning to think the unthinkable, and plan for life beyond Thatcherism?
After one of their toughest years in government,
Anthony Howard inquires into the thoughts and stratagems of the Conservative powerbrokers. He follows
Michael Heseltine 's presidential campaign around the nation. Four years out of the Cabinet, he stakes out his place as the alternative candidate in the Conservative future.
Inside Central Office, the new Party Chairman, Kenneth Baker , prepares his battleplan. And Nicholas Ridley and Lord Whitelaw consider where the Conservatives are going next and where they may be going wrong.
From the Tory frontline in Lancashire and Yorkshire, the Party's faithful workers tell the bosses why they are worried.
At Blackpool this week, Mrs Thatcher will reign unchallenged. But a future without her is no longer beyond question and, though it is not the Conservative way to say so, the battle to shape it has already begun.
(Coverage of this year's Conservative Party Conference in Blackpool begins tomorrow at 9.30am)

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.
