Horizon

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.
The Billion-Dollar Marsh
Stretching for more than 2,000 miles along the eastern seaboard of the United States is one of the world's largest marshlands, renowned for its wild life. Yet looking at its flat unending landscape, it is easy to understand why many people regard it as a wasteland fit only for development and industry.
Recently, however, scientists at two marine institutes in Georgia and Virginia have been demonstrating that the marshes are a far more valuable food source than even the best agricultural land, and essential not only for the survival of the wild-life but of the whole multi-million dollar offshore fishing industry.
Tonight's Horizon follows the work of these scientists and looks at their difficulties with developers who act first and ask questions later.

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.
