David Butler
Fellow of Nuffield College, Oxford comments on his recorded interviews on the techniques of electioneering with Viscount Hailsham, Q.C. and R. H. S. Crossman, M.P .
There were some noticeable distinctions and innovations in the methods employed by the two main parties in the recent General Election which are worth close examination. Lord Hailsham was chairman of the Conservative Party Organisation at the time of the Election, and Mr. Crossman was chairman of the Labour Party's campaign committee. Mr. Butler is the tuthor of books on recent British elections.

Who walk out on a moonlight night with your dog and gun and snare.
The hare and lofty pheasant you have at your command,
Never thinking of your last career upon

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
