Decline or Rise of the Inner Cities On Election night, the Prime
Minister made the inner cities a top priority for her third term. A special Cabinet committee has been set up, a new
Ministerial overlord appointed and fresh initiatives are said to be in the offing. But are there any realistic prospects of restoring the decaying cities to prosperity, or should we just try to manage an inevitable decline? Will any hope for success founder on institutional rivalries between departments, corporations and central and local government?

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.
