The Civil Service is under fierce attack for its inefficiency, its excessive power, its unacceptable privileges, and for the bad advice it has given successive governments over many years.
Hugo Young presents a major six-part series which examines these charges at a turning point for the reputation of government in this country, and asks who really runs Britain - the elected Government at Westminster, or the secret government in Whitehall. For this series, many civil servants spoke publicly on this central question. 1: The Civil Service is too Powerful with, among others,
Sir Ian Bancroft , Head of the Home Civil Service;
Sir Brian Cubbon , Permanent
Secretary at the Home Office; Sir Brian Hayes , Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Agriculture; The Rt Hon Tony Benn , mp; The Rt Hon Denis Healey , mp; The Rt Hon Michael Heseltine , mp; and The Rt Hon James Callaghan , mp.

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.
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.
