: There's Lead in Them There Hills

A film by DAVID BEAN
The hills are the Northern Pen-nines; the lead beneath them once gave wealth to some and death to many others. A century ago, the mines started closing but there are signs today that there may be new wealth under those same old hills.

: Tomorrow's World in Israel

William Woollard presents a special report from Israel where biblical history and modern technology jostle in a country barely twice the size of Scotland.
Israeli scientists have always had two dreams: to make the desert bloom and to make sweet water from the sea - dreams to solve Israel's own particular problems.
Now their laboratories and universities are winning international prestige with projects that will have influence beyond Israeli borders.
WILLIAM WOOLLARD tries on an ice-cool desert jacket; investigates the latest weapon in the struggle against eye-disease; goes on safari for scorpions; tests a machine that puts the sparkle in diamonds; goes underground to listen for earthquakes deep beneath the granite crags of the Negev Desert.

: One Man's China

A report in three parts by Felix Greene Part 1
The Red Chinese Army
Communist China, even after President Nixon's visit, remains almost a cut-off society for British television reporters and cameramen. But recently, freelance reporter FELIX GREENE spent five months in China, and with the help and encouragement of the authorities travelled extensively to produce without question the widest film coverage of China yet obtained by any Western cameraman.
In tonight's programme, FELIX GREENE - British journalist and friend of Communist China - looks at the People's Liberation Army. This unique film shows the day-to-day life in barracks, the training, the relationship between officers and men, and the role of the soldier in the civilian life around him.
Produced and written by FELIX GREENE

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 from BBC Store and other providers.

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.
