: THE GERMAN VIEW

2: Foreign Policy and Rearmament
Introduced by RICHARD Hiscocks
Professor of International Relations. University of Sussex
Since 1949 West Germany has been restored to a place in the Western Alliance and the international community, but within the .Federal Republic there has been conflict between those who admire President de Gaulle's conception of Europe and those who favour close links with America. A guide line of the Federal Republic's foreign policy has been the Hallstein Doctrine-a refusal to have diplomatic relations with any country that recognises East Germany. Now an agreement with Rumania suggests that the direction of West German foreign policy is changing. At the same time the whole subject of foreign policy has been complicated by the question of German rearmament.

: BIOLOGICAL BACKLASH

Four documentary programmes by GERALD LEACH
4: Dreams and Goals
Harvesting plankton from the sea is condemned for ever to be a biological dream. If you do the sums this sea soup is just too weak to make it worth concentrating without huge quantities of extra energy. There are other perhaps more likely goals: to prevent illness rather than cure it, or a high technology of agriculture that frees land for leisure. What goals can we move towards with the help of the technology that we need so much?

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.
