Ring George Scolt to put your question in person to The Rt Hen Enoch Powell MP
To promote a maximum flow of questions, [number removed] (12 lines) will take them from 6.30 pm onward, as well as while the programme is on the air.
Produced by WALTER WALLICH who writes: 'One of the nice things about this programme is that you never know who will ring in next. There was the lady from Le Havre in France on our first programme, a call from Malnao in Sweden on another. When 11-year-old James Lazarus rang from Hampstead to ask Mr Callaghan whether, if Mr Wilson resigned as Labour Party leader, he would be a candidate, we rang James's mother to make sure he'd be allowed to stay up to put his question.'
The style and atmosphere of life in Britain 70 years ago, recaptured through the words and music of Victorians at the turn of the century.
Those who fundamentally change the world are seldom recognised early in the course upon which they are set. But in 1900 a remarkable number had already begun: Marconi, the Wright brothers, Morris, Austin, Keir Hardie, Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov (Lenin)

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.
