Lord Gardiner talks to Desmond Wilcox
GERALD AUSTIN GARDINER has Spent the best part of his life campaigning for a more humane world. His passionate commitment to law reform and his campaign for the abolition of capital punishment, took him right to the top. He was appointed Lord Chancellor to the Labour Government from 1964 to 1970 and was responsible for setting up the Law Commission, a permanent body which reviews British law and proposes reforms to it.
Today he is still an active campaigner. He visited Greece under the Colonels' regime, on behalf of Amnesty International. He sponsored the Rehabilitation of Offenders' Bill. He is President of the Howard League for Penal Reform and leads an international campaign to preserve freedom of speech and expression for writers. In 1973 he was appointed Chancellor of the Open University where, remarkably, at the age of 75 he has also enrolled himself as a student.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
