: FREE-BORN JOHN

by Pauline Gregg
As the rainbow is never on that side of the world that the Sunne is ... such an opposite and Antagonist is Mr. Lilburne to all forms and kinds of Government.
John Lilburne died on August 29, 1657. In this programme Dr. Gregg contrasts this contemporary view of his career of ' universal opposition' with his own claim that he ' scorned to sit still in a whole skin while the liberties and freedoms of England were at stake.'

: POWER AND PRINCIPLE IN CENTRAL AFRICA

COLIN LEYS, Fellow of Balliol College, Oxford, speaks about the political philosophy which appears to lie behind the new franchise proposals for Southern Rhodesia and for the Federal Assembly.
He has spent several months in the Federation, and believes that conditions there have produced a strange situation of ' democracy versus liberalism,' and he speculates on whether this ' first Reform Bill' will be a final solution.

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.
