: Thatcher: the Downing Street Years

In the last of these four
I programmes examining
Margaret Thatcher 's 11 years as Prime
Minister, the Conservative Party begins to turn against her leadership, but she shows no willingness to stand down.
She claims that she was beginning to have doubts about John Major. "He came up very quickly, she says, "and there were several years of experience missing." Although there was no clear successor, colleagues were becoming increasingly to view her as an electoral liability, and she speaks of what she regarded as their disloyalty.
"What hurts most of all is that this was treachery," she says of her Cabinet, "treachery with a smile on its face." " Naturally this charge Is denied by her former colleagues.

Championship Boxing
Preston's Paul Burke defends his British and Commonwealth lightweight titles in a re-match against former champion Billy Schwer.

Burke cut the Luton fighter and the bout was stopped in the seventh round. Commentary by Harry Carpenter.

Gala, Hawick and Scottish champions Melrose form the nucleus of South District, who need a morale-boosting performance ten days before Scotland face the All Blacks at Murrayfield. Plus highlights from Cardiff of Wales v Canada.

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.
