: The State of Democracy

Presented by Jonathan Dimbleby
2: The Price of Freedom
In Britain we believe we are free citizens, but have no guaranteed rights. When should we let the state limit our freedom? Conor Gearty of Cambridge University argues that the state is failing to protect our civil liberties, while David Starkey of the London School of Economics believes that a strong executive has acted to increase freedom. Jonathan Dimbleby asks both to assess the balance of power between the citizen and the state.

: Testimony of a Child Debate

Esther Rantzen discusses the controversial issue of child sexual abuse with guests. They include a leading children's doctor, an expert who works with the treatment of offenders, and a victim of sexual abuse. They discuss some of the important issues raised by tonight's play, Testimony of a Child.
The extent of the sexual abuse of children was revealed by the events in Cleveland in 1987, where 123 children were diagnosed as being at risk.
Since then, various legal measures have strengthened parents' rights, but have children's rights been neglected?
Is there enough done for the abuser? What sort of person is he, and is it possible to change his way of life? Producers LOUISE PANTON and JOHN MORRELL

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.
