Prophets and Loss


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.
A programme about climate change and our future on the planet - a future in which nature seems, at last, to be calling our bluff. The 'prophets' - who include scientists Carl Sagan , Paul Ehrlisch and Steven Schneider , actor and environmentalist Robert Redford , Unep's Mustafa Tolba and others from
Europe, the Third World and the Soviet Union - look squarely at the consequences of our behaviour towards the planet and suggest solutions: to redirect military spending into a global war against the destruction of the planet; to develop energy efficiency (a trillion-dollar-a-year industry in itself); and to deal with the crippling inequality of Third World debt. They reveal a truth of which we are only just aware - that we are indeed 'one world' and that carbon dioxide knows no national boundaries.

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.
