The American Future: a History, by Simon Schama: American Plenty

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.
1/4. As the USA gears up for the presidential elections, historian Simon Schama digs deep into the country's past conflicts to understand what's at stake right now.
Oil may be the natural resource grabbing the headlines but in the American West, people are more concerned with the drought that's afflicted the area for nine years, and both candidates for the top job cannot afford to ignore the challenges they face as natural resources diminish.

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.
