: The Road to Aldermaston

There aren't any good brave causes left. If the big bang does come, it won't be in aid of the old-fashioned grand design. It'll be for the Brave-New-Nothing-very-much-thank-you. About as pointless and inglorious as stepping in front Of a bus. (JOHN OSBORNE
Look Back in Anger)
On Good Friday 1958, several thousand people marched out of Trafalgar Square bound for Aldermaston to demonstrate their support for nuclear disarmament. That march set the pattern for those protest rituals which characterised the British Easter during the 1960s.
Ian Rodger looks back at the occasion, with the voices of PAT ARROWSMITH , JOAN BAKEWELL HUGH BROCK , JAMES CAMERON OLIVF GIBBS and CHRISTOPHER LOGUE

Flood Gates for What?
Presented by Mary Goldrlng
The Thames Barrier is not just a way of keeping flood water out of London. It is a major piece of public expenditure. Its costs have gone up from £230-million to at least £440-million. Industrial relations have been bad, the cost of storing the gates until they are needed is f2-million. Is this inevitable, or is it another example of insufficient control of large projects?

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.
