: Man Alive Profile

An occasional series of interviews in which Desmond Wilcox talks to the men with power behind the scenes.
Sir William Armstrong , KCB, MVO, Head of the Home Civil Service and Permanent Secretary to the. Civil Service Department. His decisions vitally affect the man in the dole queue and the man at 10 Downing Street.
Recently there has been much discussion about who runs the country. Many believe that much of that power lies with anonymous civil servants; critics believe too much power, both in major policy decisions and in day-to-day contact with members of the public.
As Head of the half-million strong Home Civil Service, Sir William is responsible for the appointment of all senior civil servants. As Permanent Secretary to the Civil Service Department he was widely nicknamed ' Edward Heath's Deputy Prime Minister.' Certainly he has had immense influence on policies and politicians over the last 12 years, first running the Treasury and then the Civil Service. Yet outside Whitehall few people have heard of Sir William; or know what he does.

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.
