Talk by Robert McKenzie
The study of British politics, Mr. McKenzie suggests, has been too little concerned with what happens outside Parliament, so that a whole area of political activity is left virtually unexplored. The speaker, who is a Lecturer at rhe London School of Economics, points to the value in this connection of such empirical studies as The Party System in Great Britain by Ivor Bulmer-Thomas and David Butler 's The Electoral System in Great Britain, both published recently. followed by an interlude at 7.45

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.
