1: Dr Gro Harlem Brundtland, Prime Minister of Norway
In the first of this year's series of seven international phone-in programmes, callers worldwide are invited to put questions to Dr Gro Harlem Brundtland. Norway's first woman prime minister, Mrs Brundtland took office last May. Once described as 'tougher than any man', she has needed all her political skills to cope with the problems caused for the Norwegian economy by the decline in the price of oil. Since 1984 Mrs Brundtland has been Chairman of the United Nations
Commission on Environment and Development, which has been conducting one of the most extensive inquiries ever made into the environmental state of the planet Earth. Its report was published last Monday.
Sue MacGregor is in the Chair. Producers JANICE HADLOW for the Woman's Hour unit and NEIL CURRY for the BBC World Service

'Four men came striding through the fem from different directions. Frodo and Sam sprang to their feet, putting back to back and whipping out their small swords. All four men were hooded and masked with green, except for their eyes, which were keen and bright. At once Frodo thought of Boromir, for these men were like him in stature and bearing, and in their manner of speech.'

4.0 Crime and Punishment 2: Living in Limbo A look at the problems of prison life and the prisoners' daily routine from their point of view. Few people have any real idea about what goes on inside jails: the Victorians thought that prison would reform the offender and provide a quiet opportunity to contemplate their crimes; the present reality is that prisons are noisy places and do not appear to have deterred people from re-offending.

: The Sunday Feature: A Very Special Occasion

Thora Hird invites you to celebrate her 50th year of married life with a look at love, marriage and family life.

"When for Scottie and I the wedding day came, it was at the Wesleyan Chapel in Green Street, Morecambe. Scottie wore a black jacket and pin stripes and had a wing collar and cravat. Yours truly was done up in a high-necked dress and I had an enormous bunch of lilies that began to wilt long before the wedding guests."

Thora is joined by Janette Scott and Jeffrey Holland to help with the readings.
Peter Goodwright makes a special appearance to help re-create a scene from "Meet the Wife."

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.
