9.20am Police Powers First of six films on the Police and the public. Keeping PACE?
The Police and Criminal
Evidence Act 1984 - PACE - is the police officers' bible, a statutory set of rules which governs every aspect of police work from stop and search, to arrest and detention, to the handling of complaints.
The Police Federation say that PACE is too restrictive and hinders crime detection. Others feel that record keeping and a new complaints procedure don't go far enough to protect the suspect from possible abuse.

Treasure Island
Have Map, Will Travel
An adventure in the Pacific with actress, Moira Lister The lure was solid gold - a. life-size Madonna stolen two centuries ago from Lima
Cathedral and buried on Cocos Island.
The dream was all-consuming. For more than 30 years Moira Lister had enjoyed the fame of the stage; for rather longer she had been haunted by family memories of an old map with a smudgy cross on it. Her uncle had it - and lost it. But her dream survived. Then she met an aristocrat who produced a similiar map Now she had the map ... she would have to travel.

A Hidden Problem
'Distressing, demoralising and totally degrading.'
Since 1977 nurses have been trained with the aim of helping sufferers from incontinence. There are now Continence Advisors throughout the country, and Janet Blannin was one of the first.
I did not do justice to 'Nurses' when it started. With three episodes under its belt, it has emerged as a compelling and valuable account of how Britain's s angels are adapting their care to changing times. TODAY Sound recordist KEITH RODGERSON Film editor IAN PITCH BBC Bristol (R)

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.
