: The World of the 11 th Duke

Written and produced by DON HAWORTH
This film looks at life today in one of the last remaining dukedoms of Britain.
Twenty-four years ago Andrew Robert Buxton Cavendish inherited the title Duke of Devonshire and set himself the formidable task of preserving the seat at Chatsworth in a style evolved through four centuries by one of the richest families in Britain.
Outwardly, the estate is little changed, a monument to great thinking and to eccentricity, but industrial towns have crept up the other side of surrounding hills and Chatsworth itself is by no means an island where time stands still.

: Tomorrow's World in Canada

William Woollard treks north to report on Canada's battle to open up its frozen arctic wastes and recently discovered oil and mineral deposits.
Take photos to see what you look like from 500 miles up. Fly a hovercraft over a frozen sea. Squeeze oil from sand. Build the world's most powerful communications satellite. If all that's not too difficult why not plant a centrally heated town on ice, without it melting under you. Tricky? Canada's done it. See how and why in this film report from the world's second largest country.

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.
