6.30 The Parliamentary Process Eight programmes presented by GEORGE JONES , Reader in Political Science at the London School of Economics.
3: Government and Opposition The Government presents its policies: the Opposition's job is to oppose them. But does this mean that a lot of Parliament's time is spent in pointless debate and needless rhetoric?

Seventh of eight programmes Presented by JOHN TUSA 7: Public Safeguards
In theory, the police's responsibility is to the law. But how effectively is this put into practice when dealing with allegations of corruption and with individual complaints against the police? And are the powers of the police clearly enough defined - and adhered to?

: Mahler's Third Symphony

direct from the Royal Festival kail. London
ANNA REYNOLDS (mezzo-soprano) SOUTHEND BOYS' CHOIR director MICHAEL CRABB LONDON SYMPHONY CHORUS chorus-master ARTHUR OLDHAM LONDON SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA leader JOHN BROWN conducted by CLAUDIO ABBADO
' It may be doubted whether a symphony can embrace the whole of creation, but Mahler's Third comes near to realising this ambitious conception. This is why it lasts more than .90 minutes and is a concert in itself. It is Mahler's most comprehensive work, since it stemmed from all his three main sources of inspiration - Nature, Man and God.'

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
