: Analysis

Trying Times
The legal system is under strain, with overloaded courts and increasing delays and costs. The Government is hoping to improve the workings of the courts but can it contain costs without cutting corners?
Can the legal profession cope with the changes in prospect? And can the man in the street be confident of justice he can afford?

: My Heroes

The last of six conversations between Cliff Morgan and guests who are invited to talk about the people who have greatly influenced them. Today: Alistair Cooke
Broadcaster, journalist, voice of every American's Englishman and everyone's voice of America. This evening brings to Radio 4 his 2,055th Letter from
America, offered as always with the poised and intimate delivery that has made him one of the best-known voices in broadcasting history.
From Blackpool via Cambridge University, he moved to the United States, where he has lived for half a century. Jazz enthusiast, golf connoisseur, lover and master of language, he has kept a shrewd commentator's eye on events on either side of the Atlantic. 'I'm an observer' he says, 'noting the changes.' Are there heroes, in his eyes, who have withstood the test of time?

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.
