: Horizon

A Killing Rain
In Norway, Sweden, Britain, Canada and the United States, rivers and lakes are turning acid. Fish are dying. In Germany there is wholesale destruction of the National Forests, and in Sweden toxic metals contaminate water supplies. The culprit held responsible for all these effects is acid rain-a poisonous blend of sulphur dioxide gas and dilute sulphuric and nitric acids, mainly produced by burning coal and oil.
It's become the major international pollution problem of the 80s. Putting it right will cost billions - in Britain it could put 15 per cent on our electricity bills. Not sur. prisingly we are one of the countries resisting change. But should we really wait for yet more proof that cutting down our sulphur pollution will reverse the ecological damage it causes? How seriously should we take the grim predictions of scientists that widespread changes in world climate, escalating damage to ecology, and insidi. ous poisoning of our drinking water will follow unless we learn to treat coal and oil as potentially dangerous fuels?

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.
