The New Foresters


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
A series of four programmes featuring people who live and work in the New Forest.
2: When the Trees Bow Down
Although thousands of people visit the New Forest each year to admire the many varieties of trees that cover 30,000 acres, they probably don't realise that over half of the woodland is used for commercial growing.
Today Dennis Skillicorn meets RODNEY NEWBOROUGH , one of the Forestry Commission men responsible for marketing the timber. He also speaks to CLIFF FENNELL , a forester who works all year round cutting the timber. But all the wood doesn't find its way into the pulp and sawmills. GRETA HOPKIN-SON from Brockenhurst finds a different use for it: she spends her life searching for interesting pieces of wood to shape into beautiful wood sculptures. ' No art form has influenced me; I've been influenced purely by the wood.'
(Part 3 tomorrow at 1.45 pm)

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.
