: The Usual Channels

The Great Parliamentary Fix
Whipping, like stripping, is best done in private.
(SIR FREDDIE WARREN )
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. The Chief Whips not only control their own members, they also manage the business of Parliament itself.
Former Chief Whips The Rt Hon William Whitelaw , mp, and The Rt Hon John Silkin , MP, the Speaker, The Rt Hon
George Thomas , mp, and critical backbenchers, give their views to Robert Carvel. Producer
CAROLINE MILLINGTON

: Glasgow Rangers and Glasgow Celtic

enjoy international reputations for their achievements on the football field. They have also earned a less welcome reputation for the aggressive behaviour of a section of their supporters, culminating in the riot at Hampden
Park last May at the end of the Scottish Cup Final. The apparent Protestant versus Catholic nature of the violence between the fans has caused great concern to many bodies, including the Church of Scotland, and there has been much criticism of the clubs for their role in perpetuating sectarian conflict. But to what extent can Rangers and Celtic be blamed for fostering and exacerbating sectarian tendencies, or to what extent are the clubs themselves a product of historical tensions buried deep in the social and cultural fabric of West Central Scotland?
William Mcllvanney investigates.

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.
