: Analysis

The Other Opposition 'A sanctuary for the superannuated, an assembly of exes, a gilded sepulchre for the meritorious aged.'
The House of Lords has long been a target for the satirist and the reformer. Yet today it is this very 'assembly of exes' which threatens to inflict defeat and delay on aspects of government legislation - over education, housing and the community charge. Does the enhanced relevance of the House of Lords call for new approaches to the question of reform? Will the House of Commons permit the creation of a real rival?
Peter Hennessy examines the power and the potential of the second chamber with Lord Whitelaw, Lord Cledwyn, Lord Hailsham of St Marylebone, Lady Young, The Rt Hon Tony Benn , mp, and The Rt Hon Enoch Powell. Producer CAROLINE ANSTEY

Souping-up Soaps
Soap opera has constantly to evolve to keep storylines in touch with the preoccupations of its 1980s audience, hence the current new radio soap Citizens and a revamped Brookside.
But are social issues the real reason why people follow soaps or do they fulfil a more basic human need?
Sue Summers investigates.

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.
