The Local Government Finance (No 2) Bill is on its way through Parliament, but do you know what it’s about or how
it’s likely to affect you? In ten weeks’ time, some of you will be voting for potential councillors – do you know what
they will do if they are elected? What does go on behind the Town Halls’ doors? How much say has central
government? Rita Hale, a former Local Government Officer and Tony Travers, who lectures on Local Government are
in the studio to tackle your questions. Sue MacGregor in the chair.
Produced by the Woman’s Hour unit.

: Pacific Odyssey

After 29 years behind the Iron Curtain, Jimmy Cornell , a Romanian, came to England. But he found that a job and a mortgage became another sort of barrier to the freedom that he sought. So he gave up his job, built a yacht and, with his wife and two children, sailed round the world. They were so enchanted by the Pacific though, that they spent three years sailing from island to island, learning about the people, their customs and their music. He recounts some of his experiences and shares the music he recorded with June Knox-Mawer. Producer SUSAN snailum

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.
