with Eric Robson The last in a series re-creating Wainwright's 40-year love affair with Scotland
5: The Caimgorms
The Cairngorms are the highest upland plateau in Britain - a wild, seemingly featureless landscape often afflicted with arctic conditions. These mountains may not be so immediately attractive as those elsewhere in Scotland, but they do have their own unique stark beauty. Wainwright begins his journey on the western side around Aviemore, a village 'changed out of all recognition, and not for the better'; but concludes his summer in the Highlands in the unspoilt, austere scenery of Glen Derry and in the company of Adam Watson - a man who has devoted a lifetime to the study of this remarkable landscape.

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.
