: Thatcher: the Downing Street Years

Woman at War
And that is clearly how Margaret Thatcher saw herself, as is revealed in the first of four programmes examining her 11 years as Prime Minister. "My life was a daily battle," she says during one of the exclusive interviews around which the documentaries are pinned, and the battle was against anyone, colleague or political adversary, who dared to stand in the way of her imposing her own vision of society on the country.
This week we hear how she rejected the post-war consensus that had prevailed for more than 30 years, and the bitter battles between the so-called wets and drys within her first government are brought candidly to life.
Lords Prior, Pym and Gilmour describe in no-holds-barred terms their dislike of Thatcher's style and manner (Gilmour even referring to her as "fevered and irrational"). As the country moved into crippling recession she refused to make a U-turn in policy ("The lady's not for turning"), and Lords Prior and Gilmour argue that this was ruinous to industry and sparked mass unemployment. But by 1981 the Prime Minister had either sacked or marginalised the wets, and her policies continued unchallenged. Series producer Denys Blakeway

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.
