: A Bloody Union Jack on Top of It

2: From Polaris to Trident
Once the Labour Government of 1964 decided to go ahead with the purchase of American Polaris missiles, it was quickly confronted with the problem of maintaining the deterrent's credibility in the face of changes in Soviet defences. How essential was it that a British force should be capable of destroying Moscow? Should Britain buy off-the-shelf
American or develop a more sophisticated warhead of its own? In the final part of his history of the British nuclear deterrent, Peter Hennessy examines Britain's Polaris force, its Chevaline improvement and the secret decision-making behind the purchase of Trident.

: The Game Game

The final part of this investigation into the world of games and their players moves to a hotel in Southport. where a homicide has been arranged and people are playing the Murder Game. Sex, drugs, revenge and money are the possible motives, but sometimes it's difficult to tell who are the detectives and who are the suspects. How can people keep boogieing when there's blood on the dance floor? And why does the finger of suspicion point towards Nick Baker ?

Peter Hall 's End Game
Sir Peter Hall has chosen the three late plays in the Shakespeare canon -
Cymbeline, The Winter's Tale and The Tempest - as his farewell to the National Theatre.
Director of the National since 1973, he has fought every kind of battle with Government, Arts Council and unions; has bared his soul in his published diaries, and has nurtured new talents and celebrated the classics. Paul Allen talks to him about some of the battles past and the times ahead, as he leaves the National for the Peter Hall Company. Producer RICHARD BANNERMAN

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.
