: O'Donnell Investigates ... Booze

Dr Michael O'Donnell concludes his two-part inquiry into Britain's biggest drug problem.
The Rise and Fall of Drink
In 1933 an American newsreel announced the end of 'the biggest drought in the history of mankind'. Yet Prohibition has continued to cast its shadow. As alcohol abuse has risen, there has been a reluctance to accept it as a social problem and instead it has been called a 'disease'.
Politicians have stood aside as the disease has become an epidemic.

Swords into Ploughshares
1: The Soviet Union leads the space race, yet people queue for food in Moscow....
The USSR is in political and economical turmoil - the nation's stability may yet depend on the reform of agriculture. Although it has dramatically cut military spending, it still spends billions on armaments while relying on the USA for grain imports. The failure of Soviet agriculture has been more than an embarrassment, it threatens the whole process of perestroika and President Gorbachev's future with it.
In the first of a two-part special from the Soviet Union, Ian Breach reports on why Russia can't feed itself.
Plus the weather for the countryside at 12.55pm with Ian McCaskill.

Hermon's Beat
For nine years
Sir John Hermon led the toughest police force in Europe - the Royal Ulster Constabulary.
He was an uncompromising, blunt and contentious figure whose decisions often incurred the wrath of Ulster's politicians. Last May Sir John retired. Now, for the first time since he left the RUC, Sir John speaks out about his long career as Northern
Ireland's Chief Constable.
He tells of the stress of fighting a ruthless enemy; of the controversies that engulfed his force; and of the dilemmas he faced policing the most politically charged area in Britain.

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.
