: LOOK

Over the Dyke Peter Scott goes to Holland to find out how the animals have fared during the time that land was being reclaimed from the sea
Filmed by EWART NEEDHAM and MAURICE FISHER
Film editor, Keith Hopkins
Produced by RONALD WEBSTER
From the West
First transmission on July 1, 1964
Holland is a small country and a crowded one. and so it is important for the Dutch to reclaim as much land from the sea as possible. One of the biggest projects of reclamation is the Zuyder Zee , which was conceived by the great engineer-statesman Lely. And here an interesting invasion takes place as the land is slowly drained but before it is ready for occupation by man. A fascinating variety of wildlife moves in: it includes birds, particularly wildfowl, voles, rabbits, and insects. This afternoon's Look programme is the first of two (the second can be seen next Tuesday) about the wildlife which settles on Holland's reclaimed land.

: MONITOR

with Jonathan Miller
ART AND DELUSION
Three ways of looking at the world
Why so thin
The art critic John Berger looks at the work of the great sculptor Giacometti whose strange spindly figures have been one of the great mysteries of modern European sculpture. Berger solves the mystery in terms of Giacometti's theories of vision.
The Middle-class Magician
The art critic George Melly went to Brussels and made a film about the Belgian surrealist René Magritte whose pictures are conundrums about the way the world looks.
Cheese! Or what really did happen in Andy Warhol 's Studio
MONITOR comes to an end with a surprise of its own making.

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, and programmes to purchase.

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.
