Not National, Not Parks

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 National Parks of England and Wales are unique. They are neither 'national' nor 'parks'. Each of the ten is run autonomously. A quarter of a million people live within their boundaries. The bulk of the land remains in private hands, much of it subject to the fashions of farming. Roads. industry, foresters, soldiers and developers jostle to place their mark on a landscape which was chosen so that young and old 'could enjoy the sight and gain spiritual value from unspoilt nature'.
Almost 40 years after the first park appeared on the maps Eric Robson examines the pressures on the parks and talks to those who juggle to preserve their integrity. Producer MARY PRICE BBC Bristol
(Re-broadcast next Sunday)

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
