In 1976 Jimmy Carter took office in the White House amidst enthusiastic cries about his plain Southern honesty and his open Christianity. To disillusioned Americans, tired of dogged leadership and scandal in high places, his boyish naivety had political charm. Now three years on, those qualities have been much tested on issues of such international significance as the Middle East Agreement, SALT 11, Human Rights, and Southern Africa. But Jimmy Carter is only the tip of the ice-berg of American Evangelical Christianity. What influence have the ' born again ' had on the White House? Has early optimism now soured to disillusionment? Does a direct Bible-based - some would say simplistic - faith carry enough weight to affect the way the United States leads the West and influences the world?

The ground-swell of discontent with Britain's schools is building up to formidable proportions. They are being criticised for falling standards, in-stilling the wrong sort of objectives, and of being just plain out of touch. How far is this discontent Justified? Who is to blame? What should be done about it?

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.
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.
