Along 2,000 miles of the USA's east coast lies one of the world's largest marshlands renowned for its wildlife. But marine scientists have shown that marshes are better food sources than agricultural land. This film looks at their work and the developers who act and ask questions later.

: Password

Chairman Eleanor Summerfield This week with: Barbara Kelly and Pete Murray
The return of a series in which guest personalities help or hinder members of the public to guess the Password. The game is a race against the clock. The aim is to score points - and win prizes. But the guests would always rather score off each other - and trip an opponent. An addict's game - for punsters and crossworders.

: Panorama

A Happy New Year?
Energy shortages, industrial and political strife, fears of recession and rising unemployment -rarely has a new year opened with such gloom as 1974. Daily the experts hold the stage advising, explaining and forecasting, so tonight, for a change, Panorama reports on those of us, the majority, who are not consulted perhaps quite so much.
For the past few weeks Philip Tibenham joined the people of Hereford to see how the daily dose of news affected their lives; how one community rang out the crisis-ridden old and brought in the new.

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 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 find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

This is a historical record of both 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.
