: Is Britain Civilised?

'A Civilised Society is based on the belief that different individuals will wish to make different decisions about their pattern of behaviour and that Provided this doesn'restrict the freedom of others they should be allowed to do so, within the framework of understanding and tolerance.'
(Roy Jenkins 1969)
Society has now fairly got the better of individuality; and the danger which threatens human nature is not the excess, but the deficiency, of personal impulses and preferences.' (John Stuart Mill 1859) Are the changes in social legislation and social behaviour which have taken place in recent years really the marks of greater civilisation? Do they add to the quality of life in these islands? And in the coming years how many of the existing restraints on social behaviour will it be thought desirable or possible to discard?
BERNARD LEVIN discusses these issues at length with JOHN SPARROW, Warden of All Souls College, Oxford MICHAEL FOOT, MP
ALASDAIR MACINTYRE , Professor of Sociology, Essex University STEPHEN ABRAMS , psychologist

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
