G.C.M.G., K.C.B.
3-The Atlantic Bridge A close and enduring association between Britain and the United States is, in Sir Oliver Franks's view, a main condition of Britain's capacity to function as a great power. As Ambassador in Washington he observed both the need for this association and the many forms of friction which, on both sides of the Atlantic, at the same time accompany and impede its achievement. In this lecture he examines the necessity for intimate Anglo-American co-operation, and suggests some possible ways of curing misunderstanding.

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.
