Cold Shoulder by PETER JUKES
Both on the verge, hitching south to London, on a cold, windswept day. But he's fat, flabby and 32, and she's young and upwardly mobile, with everything going for her. North meets South as the cars speed past and night sets in - but one of them's on the road to nowhere.

Tomorrow in Parliament
Although women won the right to become Members of Parliament over half a century ago, today there are still only 28 compared with 622 men. But the political parties have now realised that the public expects to see a more equal representation at Westminster and the next General Election should see a record number of women MPs.
Who are the new women coming on to the political scene in 1987? How different are they from the generation that produced Margaret Thatcher and Shirley Williams ?
Sonia Beesley reports on the women who will be speaking out tomorrow in Parliament. Producer CLARE SELERIE-GREY

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.
