: Taking Liberties?

Open Space
Where the public sets the agenda.
'It seems to me that rights are rather like public footpaths -if you don't use them, you wake up one morning and they're not there.' (PATRICIA STUBBS ,
Sheffield Policewatch)
The miners' strike has been one of the most bitter and controversial strikes this century. Sheffield
Policewatch, an independent monitoring group, together with Open Space, takes an in-depth look at the tactics employed by the police and the courts during the dispute.
Made by Sheffield Policewatch with the Community Programme Unit and at 7.35
Out of Court
In the studio of BBCtv's law and order programme, David Jessel chairs a discussion on some of the issues raised by Taking Liberties?
Is the machinery of the law proving inadequate? Has the pressure of events dictated a form of para-military policing? At times of large-scale unrest, is it possible to reconcile civil liberty with keeping the peace?

This coming weekend, if the space shuttle stays on schedule, American astronauts might save
Lloyd's underwriters tens of millions of dollars.
Stephen Merrett and Richard Maylam specialise in the high-risk business of satellite insurance. Last February two satellites they'd insured spun off into useless orbit.

This is the inside story of nine months of delicate negotiation and calculated risk-taking that promises to be a dramatic space rescue. Narrator Hugh Sykes

: Forty Minutes

... of documentary The Happy Medium
Doris Stokes , Spiritualist superstar, has publicly demonstrated to the satisfaction of many thousands that there is life after death, and that we can contact those who have 'passed over'. At private sittings, in Spiritualist churches, in theatres and cinemas, the homely
65-year-old medium chatters away to the dead as if they were her next-door neighbours. Doris Stokes is not clairvoyant - she doesn't see things, become possessed or go into a trance. She claims to be clairaudient - like a radio receiver tuning in to the other side, picking up the voices of the dead, and passing on their messages to the living.
The sceptic will undoubtedly detect some sleight of hand, but to her followers (mostly women) who are shattered by grief, and who have failed to come to terms with bereavement by more conventional forms of religion or philosophy, Doris Stokes brings good tidings of comfort and joy, and a more solid contentment than can be purchased with a bottle of tranquillisers.

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.
