: The Future of Local Government

An enquiry presented by GRAHAM ASHWORTH
Discussion of local government reform has centred on reorganisation of its structure. With the Government's response to the proposals of the Maud Commission still awaited, two schools of thought, represented broadly by the County Councils Association and the Association of Municipal Corporations, seem to be irreconcilably opposed.
Does the solution to the problem lie in a much greater break with tradition than any so far suggested? Speakers include:
LORD REDCLIFFE-MAUD DEREK SENIOR
J. K. BOYNTON. Clerk to Cheshire County Council j. c. SWAFFIELD, Secretary of the Association of Municipal Corporations
FRANK HARRIS , formerly Principal City Officer and Town Clerk, Newcastle upon Tyne ALDERMAN ERNEST WISTRICH

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.
