3/5. Paradise Lost. A look at how the 1960s saw
Harold Wilson , the cocky grammar-school boy made good, elected prime minister of a country that was fast-embracing the spirit of progress.
Wilson conjured up the image of a future driven by science and the "white heat" of a technological revolution. But while the Swinging Sixties unleashed dreams of a fairer, liberated future, Wilson's government presided over years of industrial conflict, stagnation and decline, which in turn led to the industrial malaise and class and generational conflicts of Edward Heath 's Britain in the 1970s.

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.
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.
