(PRESIDENT NIXON On
Moscow television after signing SALT 1)
As the world shudders in the shadow of superpower confrontation over Afghanistan, Richard Nix on's words echo eerily, without the promise they held in 1972. So were the hopes placed in detente over-ambitious? Will the achievements in the fields of arms control, trade and diplomatic relations survive the cold dawn of the 80s? With contributions from many of the principals involved - including Henry Kissinger , Egon Bahr and Gerald Ford - John Tusa examines a decade of detente. Producer ANDREW VIVIAN

The blind leading the blind? It's meant to be helpful, but as DAVID SCOTT BLACKHALL (left) says: 'Most people are kind, but so often they try to help in the wrong way. They get between me and my guide dog, grip my arm and push me forward - when it's much easier and safer for me to take their arm and follow them - and people will point when I ask them for directions! ' Join David when he gets In Touch with other blind people tonight at 8.5 pm
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.
