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 Government faces a crucial test in the run-up to the publication of its Green Bill. It is over the future of their own wildlife watchdog, the Nature Conservancy Council. Under present proposals it is going to be split into three, with Scotland, England and Wales setting their own conservation agendas. Critics claim it is a cynical attempt to gag the NCC, who have fought several running battles with the Government, particularly in Scotland. The Scottish Office argues that it is simply devolution.
John Craven reports on the political intrigue surrounding the future of nature conservation in Britain.
Plus at 12.55pm the weather for the countryside with Michael Fish.

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.
