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
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. Producer GILLIAN HUSH BBC Manchester

Lady Peter Wimsey:
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.
