Government and the Governed
Six talks by Sir Douglas Wass, GCB, Permanent Secretary to HM Treasury and Joint Head of the Home Civil Service until his retirement in spring this year.
1: United Thoughts and Counsels
Good government has traditionally been associated with prosperity and contentment. It must be efficient and responsive, above all in its central decision-taking processes. Our present machinery of government provides little guarantee that ministers collectively will make rational choices between different policy options on our behalf. The transcript of this lecture is in THE LISTENER published tomorrow

: That Reminds Me

I think it is my duty to look upon every part I sing as the best one in the world, and the moment I'm on stage I must feet that this is what I really prefer to do. But I think every singer has the same feeling about certain parts: this is my role. The Swedish soprano Elisabeth Soderstrom reflects on some of her favourite operatic roles.

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.
