: The State of Democracy

A series of five programmes presented by Jonathan Dimbleby 1: We, the People
The French Revolution, 200 years ago, transformed western democracy. But its principles of liberty, equality and fraternity left Britain's unwritten constitution virtually untouched.
Through the week, this series asks how that constitution serves us today, and culminates in a national debate on individual liberties and democracy in Britain. Voices from all over the United Kindgom express concerns about the way we are governed and the balance of power between citizen and state. Jonathan Dimbleby asks Prof David Marquand of Salford University and Dr Jonathan Clark of Oxford University, whether these concerns constitute a crisis.

: The Home Front

A series of six films with Patrick Nuttgens
2: What about the Workers?Tonight's film looks at the origins of mass housing in the slums of the Industrial Revolution and the first attempts to provide decent housing for the working man in Scotland, in Yorkshire and on Merseyside. Also, how government became involved after the First World War and why.
Patrick Nuttgens explores these questions with the help of rare archive film and first-hand accounts of life in the early part of this century: under the wing of philanthropic employers like the Rowntree family, or in the early, ambitious council schemes like the Quarry Hill flats in Leeds.

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.
