Portrait of a Decade Promises, Promises!
New kinds of freedom, social progress, hints of a welfare state and, for some, the benefits of the new technology - electricity, the motor car. The decade started out with high hopes until totalitarian power began to creep over it.

After Chernobyl - Closer to Home
When a massive explosion blew the roof off reactor four at Chernobyl, it changed the way many people think about nuclear power. Could it happen here? And, if not, what sort of accident could happen here? How would emergency plans and services cope?
One of Britain's latest nuclear stations - at
Hartlepool in the heart of industrial Teesside - is hemmed in by a huge petrochemical complex, and outside that live nearly a million people. Yet
Hartlepool has the smallest evacuation zone in the western world. A year after Chernobyl, how safe are we closer to home?

Strip Searching -
Security in the Raw
Complainants about the use and abuse of strip searching confront the security arguments of police and prison authorities. The film includes a prison officer training demonstration of a strip search - and a very different reconstruction by ex-prisoners themselves.
'You're just standing there naked; it's a terrible feeling. You want to scream and you want to cry - you want to hit out, but you know you can't....' (REMAND PRISONER) 'If you want to find drugs, explosives, or any other form of contraband - there isn't a magic box. There is only the quick, efficient strip search.'
(SECURITY EXPERT)
The authorities maintain strip searching is a necessary evil. Its critics say it is widely abused - to humiliate and degrade people who are already vulnerable.

Producer GAVIN DUTTON

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
