: THE GERMAN VIEW

3: A second experiment in Democracy
Introduced by Richard HISCOCKS
Professor of International Relations, University of Sussex
'New Nazis in shock poll result' said one British newspaper recently, indicating something of the British attitude of fearful fascina- tion towards German politics. The Federal Republic of West Germany has already lasted longer than the ill-fated Weimar Republic after the First World War, but economic conditions have changed and so have the people running the country. How successful is modern West German democracy? What have been its deficiencies and achievements? West German politicians and observers look critically at Federal politics under a new Chancellor and a Grand Coalition.

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.
