In the middle of the political party conference season, this programme looks at the much-discussed "moral crisis" and asks who decides what is right and wrong when no-one can agree?
At the heart of the programme are the revealing results of a nationwide survey carried out by pollsters MORI into the moral beliefs of 18-35-year-olds. Questions asked include who do young people trust with laying down guidelines for life in the 90s, and which is the most moral of today's political parties? Plus a session from the Proclaimers,
Bernard Manning on blasphemy, Paul Gambaccini on the morality of rock 'n' roll and Piers Morgan, editor of News of the World, on the morality of the press. A Burning Pictures production
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.
