with Ludovic Kennedy Richard Kershaw and the News from Kenneth Kendall
Tonight's interview:
Rt Hon Shirley Williams , mp
' I really don't like feeling myself disliked. I hate the infighting in the party.' SHIRLEY WILLIAMS has made plain frequently that she doesn't enjoy all that politics have to offer. But she is a politician, nonetheless, and a successful one. The Cabinet changes have now given her two jobs: Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection, and Paymaster General. Some who've watched her career see her as an eventual leader of the party.
Ludovic Kennedy talks to Mrs Williams about her work and her view of Socialism.

: Horizon

Why Did Stuart Die ?
STUART FISHER , aged two months, died without warning on New Year's Day 1975. The child of loving parents, he was found dead in his cot. Why should a cherished, healthy child die so unexpectedly? Stuart is not unique, every day eight British babies die without any warning or explanation. In fact Britain now has one of the worst infant mortality rates in Western Europe, and these mysterious ' cot-deaths ' are the biggest single cause of deaths for the under-2s.
But medical research has now discovered clues which may help reduce this death-toll. Finland has drastically reduced its cot-deaths by concentrated health-care in the first few months of life.
Tonight's Horizon asks if we could do the same, and how long it will be before we can prevent the deaths of 3,000 babies who die like Stuart Fisher , without warning and without explanation? Narrator PAUL VAUGHAN
Written and produced by. CHRISTOPHER RILEY

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.
