Six programmes
3: The Judges' Rules
The Judges' Rules, which are supposedly our main bastion against oppressive conduct in police stations, have less force in law than the Highway Code. (London solicitor,
PAUL BOATENG)
I don't accept that they're not observed and I certainly don't accept that they're not enforced.
(LORD JUSTICE LAWTON)
The Judges' Rules which have operated since the beginning of the century, mainly to control what the police may and may not do to secure statements from suspects, arc currently one of the great burning issues in the administration of justice. Are reforms needed? If so. what should they be? Hugo Young discusses these questions with LORD JUSTICE LAWTON and two experienced High Court judges, MR JUSTICE DRAKE and MR JUSTICE PAIN; solicitor PAUL BOATENG: and barrister NEIL DENISON ; DETECTIVE CHIEF SUPT PHILIP CORBETT ; CHIEF CONSTABLE JOHN ALDERSON ; and others.

: The Usual Channels

The Great Parliamentary Fix
Whipping, like stripping, is best done in private.
(SIR FREDDIE WARREN. former Private Secretary to the Government
Chief Whip)
The first time one of the Whips hits the river it will be a great day for democracy.
(Backbench mp)
Of all the issues that divide the front and back benches in the House of Commons, it's perhaps the activities of the ' usual channels ' - the Government and Opposition Chief Whips - that cause the most bitterness and resentment. For the Chief Whips not only control their own members with a mixture of discipline and patronage, they also manage the business of Parliament itself.
Are the ' usual channels a necessary fix?
Former Chief Whips The Rt Hon William Whitelaw. mp. the Home Secretary, and The Rt Hon John Silkin. mp. Opposition Industry spokesman; the Speaker of the House of Commons, The Rt Hon George Thomas , mp, Mid its Leader. The Rt Hon Norman St John Stevas. mp. civil servants and a cross-section of critical backbenchers give their views to Robert Carvel Producer

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
