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 use of chemicals on the land has always been an emotive subject. Aerial crop spraying receives most complaints from the public and pressure groups and brings bad press for farmers. Ian Breach assesses the practice in the light of recent legal guidelines and changes in legislation.
One of Britain's finest landscape photographers, Charlie Waite , goes on a photographic trip to the Isle of Arran in Scotland. He gives a personal insight into his choice of subject matter and distinctive photographic style.
Plus the week's most comprehensive weather forecast with John Kettley at 12.55.

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.
