: Brass Tacks

No Soft Option
It weighs slightly less than a cricket ball, and comes at you twice as fast.
The L5A4 baton round - the plastic bullet - is now available to every police force in the land. Every policeman is trained in the techniques and tactics of its use.
In Arms of the Law last week, the Chief Constable of the West Midlands,
Geoffrey Dear , told Brass Tacks what converted him to the need for these weapons, and the circumstances under which he would fire them.
Six years after the first inner city riots in St Paul's, Bristol, Britain seems to be arming its police against the collapse of inner city policies. Will the use of plastic bullets on our streets become a turning point in our policing we will live to regret?
Tonight Geoffrey Dear joins Peter Taylor and the Brass Tacks audience to confront the consequences of their use - for the police, for the public, and for the Queen's peace.

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.
