'We don't really understand
Northern Ireland - what's really happening out there?'
'No one bothers to explain Belfast anymore - what's ordinary life like? Why can t we find out for ourselves?'
The Radio 4 Generation were all first time voters at the last election. Radio 4 is following the progress of these 200 young People over the coming decade. When the 'troubles' in Northern Ireland began most of them were preschool toddlers.
When they first met in June, most were curious about the Province. Now they're in Belfast to find out for themselves and to exchange perceptions with their counterparts from the Six Counties.

Those who did challenge it faced jail, exile or death. But now many of those formerly underground voices are speaking openly. The debate is not only about more meat and less censorship, but, as Bridget Kendall and Gordon Clough find in their last report from the USSR, it amounts to a serious probing of the future role of Lenin's Party in Gorbachev's Soviet Union.

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.
