The recent riots in Handsworth, Toxteth, Brixton and Tottenham have brought to the surface yet again the frustrations felt by many of those living in Britain's inner cities.

In the studio to explore your views are lawyer Paul Boateng, Chairman of the GLC Police Committee, and The Rt Hon Merlyn Rees MP, former Home Secretary. Jenni Murray is in the Chair.

Some of the most beautiful books ever produced in this country are the work of this little-known publisher. He was the only man who would publish Oscar Wilde after his release from Reading Gaol and he gave hope and work to

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.
