Panorama

Synopsis

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.
Ferries the Fatal Flaw
On 28 Septemberthe ferry Estonia sank in minutes in the Baltic Sea with the loss of 900 lives. It was the second major accident involving roll-on roll-off passengerferries in seven years.
Jane Corbin reports on the failure of governments and ferry companies to address the real problem of these vessels - their design, which makes them fatally vulnerable once water gets onto the car deck. Why were warnings ignored and why have considerations of cost been allowed to prevail over safety at sea?
Producer Andrew Williams ; EditorGlenwyn Benson
NOTE: because Panorama is a topical programme and likely to react to events in the news, the above programme is liable to change.

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.
