From Atomic Power to Zoos A hard look at the world around us with Michael Buerk and reporters John Howard and Linda Mitchell

What Price Fresh Air?
Eight years ago American scientists proved conclusively that lead in petrol damaged children's brains. Since then there has been a steady campaign against it. But many British motorists are still confused. And some oil companies have been slow on the uptake. So who can use lead-free petrol and at what cost? Nature has been finding out. Also, the return of the rat: why water sport enthusiasts are being warned about a disease carried by Britain's most common rodent.
Plus the latest live news from around the world.

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.
