Train guard/Football supporter:
Hungarian films have won a high international reputation for being innovative and outspoken. But at home the audiences prefer American blockbusters. As the Hungarian film industry tries to be more responsive to its local public, there's a danger that films become more populist but less Hungarian. Meanwhile, film-makers are calling for higher seat prices and less generous funding!

London - like most large cities - has had its share of civil disorder. One of the most bizarre examples took place in February 1886 when a meeting, called to protest against the plight of the destitute and homeless, led to mass looting, violence and a state of general panic. Afterwards the popular orator John Burns and the journalist Henry Hyndman were charged with sedition.
Mitch Raper relates what led up to their arrest and what took place at the trial.

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.
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.
