Death of a Member A play for radio by PHILIP HONEYWELL with Anton Rodgers John Hollis and Caroline Blakiston
' It's the same for all of us. You stand on the balcony of the Town Hall, thanking the returning officer and his minions and you congratulate your opponent on a good clean fight. And you feel fine. But I've been here six years, I've signed 100 motions and not one has been debated. I'm an unpaid social worker, a political nonentity.'

Marx on the Move
Presented by Chris Cvile
In France, Italy and Spain, Communist Parties have been gaining ground. Their appeal to the electorate emphasises their independence from the Soviet Union and insists on the importance of parliamentary democracy and human rights. Are we seeing the emergence of a new version of communism in these countries? What are the implications, for NATO and other institutions, of the growth of Eurocommunism?

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.
