This week:
CITY BOSS
In this country, for the first time, real moves are being made to give our cities one-man-rule-not just rubber-stamp mayors for a year, but leaders with full executive authority.
In Canada, Montreal was once a roaring vice-ridden city until a little French-Canadian lawyer named Jean Drapeau set to work. He helped write a newspaper series that exposed the vice. Then he was co-prosecutor at the enquiry into the police force that followed.
The city had found a champion.
The people immediately made him mayor-and he has been back to the City Hall four times, the last time with an incredible ninety-four per cent of the vote. Mayor Drapeau has given Montreal the modern metro it had argued over for fifty years, a concert hall shelved for twenty-five years, a vast underground shopping complex—and Expo 67, the world fair that won him international acclaim.
But now the bills are due. Man
Alive caught up with Mayor Drapeau as he faced a city deficit of nearly$30-million (fll-million) -and the first real questioning of his poor record on housing and social welfare. Have we in Britain anything to learn from the policies and actions of this feudal man with a near dictatorial authority, or is he, as one newspaper charged, ' high on prestige, low on compassion'?
Director, JAMES KENELM CLARKE

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.
