Introduced and narrated by Harold Evans
Editor, The Sunday Times
The last in a series of four films about the world of journalism in different countries. Each is a portrait of a publication that stands outside the mainstream of its own society.
Proceso in Mexico
In a country where traditionally the press is wary of criticising the government and bribery of journalists is commonplace, one man. Julio Scherer , attempted to clean up the system. His courageous editorship of Mexico City's leading daily newspaper, Excelsior, where he fought vigorously for the principle of free speech, was abruptly curtailed by a government-inspired coup against him.
Today he edits an independent magazine, Proceso, possibly the only truly unfettered publication in the Mexican press. His lone struggle has been supported from abroad, especially in the United States. This summer Atlas Press gave him their award as International Editor of the Year.

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.
