Anne Nightingale features listeners' letters on almost any subject.
Recent letters expressed the following views:
' Surely abortion is an issue which affects the woman or the couple concerned and the decision should be made without any pressure on either side. I believe that every woman who sincerely wants an abortion should be allowed to have one. An abortion is not an easy way out of a pregnancy and I think that no woman goes through the trauma of obtaining one unless she feels it's truly necessary.' ' In contemporary society one of our most important obligations is the preservation of life. Take for example the phasing out of the death sentence. Consequently, should not an unborn, living human be protected by a society that is so dedicated to preservation? '

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.
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.
