The 3CR catalogue of extragalactic radio sources is now completely identified for b > 15° and redshifts have been determined for > 98% of them (see Djorgovski et al. 1988 for the latest update). The radio galaxies in this catalogue span the redshift range from 0 to 2.48. This sample provides us with a unique opportunity to examine the optical and radio properties of a complete sample over a look-back time comparable to the Hubble time.
