The economy is not growing fast enough to keep up with inflation; Spanish entry to the Common Market is causing problems; and there have been two government crises in a year over threats to introduce indirect taxation.... Can Andorra survive the 20th century? Presenter Arthur Garratt Producer ADAM RAPHAEL .HEAR THIS! page 16

The Vanishing Mandarins The Civil Service is losing some of its best officials. As well as the cuts in the quantity of civil servants
- 100,000 down since 1979 - the quality is under threat. Morale is low, and, allegedly, officials are required to behave like political lap-dogs.
Hugo Young examines the evidence and asks whether the traditional Civil Service ethos is still relevant to the Britain of the 80s?

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.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
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.
