Two programmes on the impact of television on its audience. 2: The Truth Game
When Gordon Newman 's four-part police drama Law and Order was broadcast last year, some critics saluted it as a particularly truthful account of the realities of police work, but senior police officers denounced it on the grounds that its distortions would mislead the public. The truth is rarely plain or j simple. But how far are people's views of the real world determined or influenced by TV drama? In this programme we present the results of a specially commissioned research study on the impact of Law and Order on a chosen group of viewers. With comments from
Richard Hoggart , Sir Robert Mark Alasdair Milne , Alan Plater and Shaun Sutton

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.
