A listener from Middlesex writes: ' What do you think about stickers? What used to be amusing and faintly interesting has become boring and annoying. It starts with compulsory stickers like the one that shows you have paid your road tax, or the GB sticker when you travel abroad by car. When you buy a new car, it has the sticker of the dealer on it. If you become a member of a windsurfing club, you'll get a sticker which states, " Windsurfers do it standing up."

Just how gullible are we. or is it that we need to identify ourselves with a certain croup or idea? '

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.
