Recent public opinion polls have shown that approximately 45 per cent of people questioned believe that nuclear war is likely in their lifetime. For 15-24-year-olds this figure is increased to 58 per cent. What can be done to prevent a nuclear holocaust? How did the arms race ever get started? Should Britain set an example to the rest of the world by withdrawing its support for nuclear weapons, or does the reality of international politics make an atomic arsenal essential?
Adrian Love chairs Radio 1's open discussion - an opportunity for schools and clubs to choose the subject, provide a panel and pick the programme's music. Add a couple of invited ' experts ' and some abrasive comments by the chairman, and the result is an hour's uninhibited argument.

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.
