: Living on the Land

Spring at New Barn Farm
Gerry Symons is a professional dairy farmer with 75 acres in Devon, a herd of Friesians and computer print-outs to tell him how he's doing. That spring it was very badly. Like many other farmers, he had the perplexing experience of working a 16-hour day for next to nothing while through the years the value of the land under his feet soared to the level of a small fortune.

: The Year of the Bulldozer

' Nowadays kids use cine-cameras just like pencils or crayons - as a tool to say things with. Cartoons used to be highly expensive and professional, now children make them at school. There's no Holly-wood film business mystique about making films any more ... and that's good,' said TED ROCKLEY , 22-year-old prizewinner.
Tony Cash reports on the prize-winning films from the 5th International Animated Film Contest Jor Young People, organised by JOHN HALAS , sponsored by BBCtv, ICOGRADA and ASIFA.
Earlier this year, on 20 March, the seven judges assembled in a War-dour Street projection theatre. Ahead of them stretched a two-day viewing session. They saw 47 films, 8mm and 16mm, from seven different countries - all on the theme of European Architectural Heritage Year.
How young people view the world emerged very clearly. There were films featuring wicked bulldozers and brave castles, evil property developers and family pets. One film starred an accident-prone character who won a fishing competition, another a solid citizen called Mr Protest , who went to the Prime Minister. The youngest prizewinner was only 12, the oldest 22.
In this programme you can see all the winning trims, and meet the jury and some of the young film-makers.

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.
