If Labour Win
Next week the Labour Party gathers in Blackpool to discuss its programme for its next term of office. But if there is a new Labour Government in the near future can we afford that programme? Does Labour have a policy for wages as well as prices? Could Labour halt inflation and create growth? And does the record of the Labour Government of 1964-1970 indicate Labour's ability to manage the economy?

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.
