: TOWARDS TOMORROW

Tuesday's Documentary
Your future is being created now -for better or for worse?
A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE GARBAGE DUMP
Waste of every kind is on the increase, polluting the earth. The volume of refuse alone will double in twenty years. Unless we do something, cities will be engulfed in their own wastes.
Should we store our wastes in huge artificial mountains for possible future re-use? Or re-design our own homes to produce less waste? Waste can be eliminated. But there are psychological problems.
Film from Britain, France,
America, and Sweden shows what is being done in the eleventh-hour bid to avoid the waste-high society.
Series editor, MAX MORGAN-WITTS Written and produced by MICHAEL WEIGALL

: EIGHT DAYS IN AUGUST

Eight eventful days in Czechoslovakia seen through the eyes of one prominent Czech. Eight days that for him ended in exile.
Now Kamil Winter , former Head of News, Czech Television, gives his account of the Russian invasion and the response of his fellowcountrymen. It is a story that could be told a thousand different ways-but always a story with a common hero-the Czechoslovak people.
Written and narrated by Kamil Winter

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.

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.
