The story of the Peace .People of Northern Ireland
They arose on a tide of emotion four years ago, after three little children were killed in an awful accident of war. They marched in their thousands, clasping hands across the sectarian divide.
Then the tide of emotion receded. The marching stopped and gradually both money and members have faded away. This year the children's mother killed herself and co-founder Betty Williams left the Peace People.
Were they ever-are they still - a force for peace in Northern Ireland? Were they doomed to fail, or did thev - do they - bring failure on themselves?

A Victim of the Aurora by THOMAS KENEALLY
A man is murdered during Sir Eugene Stewart 's South Polar Expedition of 1910. He is a journalist who had ferreted out unsavoury facts about the past lives of members of the- expedition. In the claustrophobic situation of mid-winter Antarctica fears and suspicions are easily aroused. Nearly everyone has' a motive for the murder and in the background lurk the ' ghosts ' of two missing members of an earlier expedition who could, just conceivably, still be alive.

Robert Harris was 80 this year and began his broadcasting career in 1922, at the Gaiety Theatre - even before the Savoy Hill days of 2LO.
In this play he is heard as an octogenarian author who has been awarded the Order of Merit. He is featured in a television programme during the course of which he is forced, for the first time, to see himself as he really is.

Sir Colin Ffrench:
The Government is. in principle in favour of giving ordinary people access to the airwaves. Citizens' Band radio has been a mixed blessing in the United States. What can be learnt from it? Why do people risk imprisonment to use CB here? Will the Government's idea, open channel, work better?
Peter Barsby looks at what happens when the man in the street becomes a broadcaster.
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.
