: This Question of Pressures: 4: The Price of Opposition

The abolition of Resale Price Maintenance was put through in the face of terrific lobbying and opposition. The small traders, at the grassroots of the Tory Party, were bitterly opposed; the administration uncertain.

Tony Coe and Peter King are two of the most sought after saxophone players, whether it be for big band section work or small groups. Each holds the other in high regard and therefore tonight is a rare opportunity to hear them both playing together.
Peter King, amongst other highlights in his musical career, has played with the Ray Charles Orchestra and Tony Coe has an open invitation to join the Count Basie Orchestra whenever he wishes.

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.
