In an increasingly complicated world, week by week Newsweek disentangles, illuminates and explains an issue of current concern. The Government's pledge of a free vote in Parliament on the issue of capital punishment has been made an early priority.
David Jesscl assesses the balance of the arguments and the likelihood of more work for the hangman.

: Midweek Cinema: Interlude

continues the season of films by DOUGLAS SIRK starring
June Allyson
Rossano Brazzi
When librarian Helen Banning goes to work in Munich, she is not prepared for the delights of Europe or an unexpected love affair with an internationally famous conductor, Tonio Fischer. Unfortunately, the musician is married and his wife Reni is mentally ill ... Director Douglas Sirk turns this conventional love story into a bleakly-moving portrait of a tortured marriage and engages our sympathy as much for the neurotic wife as for the lovers. The film was shot largely on location and the city of Munich forms an important aspect of the film.
Produced by Ross HUNTER

The programme in which the BBC hands over air time to the public.
This week Jim Four with James, Keith, Kevin, Gerald and Malcolm, presents
The Way Back
Why should you put limits on us, because we're mentally handicapped? We do not accept such limits, and in our programme we hope to turn your ideas about us upside down. We think that we may have found The Way Back for those of us who do not measure up to those standards.
I Don't just watch this programme - we want you to contribute ideas, not on how you can help us, but on how we can help you. (We're even offering a prize ...!)'

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.
