: A Sideways Look at...

by Anthony Smith

: Analysis

Farewell to Detenle?
The Soviet armed intervention in Afghanistan has provoked an immediate and sharp response in the West. It has confirmed the fears of many that Moscow's foreign policy aims have changed for the worse. How far does this latest action represent a shift in Soviet intentions? What effective steps can the West take in response? How will it affect the process of detente and East-West relations generally? What does it say about the role of force as an instrument of foreign policy? Is an acceleration of the arms race now inevitable? Professor Laurence Martin , Vice-Chancellor of the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, is in the chair. Producer TOM READ

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.
