At the Times they were called the black friars. At the Guardian they used to write in longhand, standing at lecterns. Stentorian voices for their newspapers, they dictated to statesmen, compelling the world to rights.
Who are they nowadays, the leader-writers? They deliver the editorials, but they are not the Editors. Their stock in trade is opinion, and yet their prose is never signed. Do their words still carry weight, or is their presence merely custom? Is their job to persuade the readers, or to please the proprietors?

Canvassing the views of Ms fellow professionals, he presents a profile of a particular breed of journalist. Producer JOY HATWOOD

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.
