: Analysis

A Question of Security
The communiqué at the end of the recent NATO Summit meeting underlined the problems facing the Allies in their pursuit of peace - particularly the growth in military strength of the Warsaw Pact. Mr Karaman lis, the Greek Prime Minister, speaking in his capacity as Honorary Chairman of the Atlantic Council, said that ' We are all aware that between last year and now certain critical question marks have risen in the area of the Alliance which are still awaiting satisfactory answers.' Nevertheless the communique stated that ' the allied leaders are strengthened in their resolve to preserve the solidarity of the Alliance and restore it where impaired, by removing causes which disturb it among allies.'
The position of Portugal, the conflict between Greece and Turkey and a distrust of the United States after its withdrawal from Indo-China, have put severe strains on the Western Alliance and, in an era of so-called detente, its whole existence has been called into question.
Brian Beedham examines the role and validity of the Atlantic Alliance and considers how it is likely to survive in the coming years.

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.
