: King and Country: That III-Starred Resolution

On 9 February 1933 - only days after Hitler came to power in Germany - the Oxford Union voted ' That this House will in no circumstances fight for its King and Country.'
* I hope you do penance every night and every morning for that ill-starred resolution.' wrote a correspondent to the Union President. ' If the Germans have to be knocked out a second time it will be partly your fault.'
Martin Ceadel talks to the men of 1933 - Max Beloff. David Graham. Frank Hardie. Lord Hailsham of St Marylebone and Lord Longford-and re-assesses the debate's importance in the sequence of events which led to war.

Mr Desai 's Indian Summer Part 1
Almost a year after Morarji Desai became Prime Minister of India at the age of 81, following his unexpected victory over Mrs Gandhi and the Congress Party in the country's General Election, both President Carter and Mr Callaghan have shown, by their recent visits, the importance the West attaches to the new Government. But how are India's rulers tackling the country's political, social and economic problems? What are the strengths and weaknesses of Mr Desai 's Janata Government? What does it see as India's position in the world?

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.
