Some of the most liberal intellectuals of the Victorian period viewed the coming of democracy with dismay, and its few champions were on the defensive. Time has perhaps vindicated the democratic case so far as England is concerned; but experience elsewhere may equally be seen as confirming the opinions of the critics of democracy.

Facts and Figures about
Viewing and Listening
This is a report by the BBC Audience Research Department. In a series of twelve charts, each with an accompanying commentary, it illustrates facts and figures relating to television viewing, sound broadcasting, children's evening viewing of television, and the relationship between audience size and audience appreciation. An appendix briefly describes the methods used to obtain the information depicted.
The booklet may be obtained through newsagents and booksellers or by sending a crossed postal order for 5s. to BBC Publications[address removed]
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.
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.
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.
