Cure for a Sick Man
Turkey was known in the last century as the 'Sick Man of Europe', and three military coups since 1960 made it appear the label still held true. But since the army returned to the barracks in 1983 and Mr Turgut
Ozal became Prime Minister, the country has had high economic growth under an elected government. Already a NATO member, Turkey now wants to join the European Community. How strong is the country's western orientation? What would be the impact of EEC membership? How secure are both the government's economic reforms and its democracy?

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.
