The exciting action sequence was filmed on the M1-M6 linkroad outside Birmingham. The Z Car men were among the first people to drive on it as it wasn't opened officially until last week.

: Be Fruitful and Multiply: Tuesday's Documentary

And God said unto them, Be fruitful and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it.

Every year there are 70 million more people on our planet. Which is to say that every three years there is a new United States, not only to be housed and fed, but demanding the right to work, education, and proper medical care. And this in a world where two-thirds of humanity are undernourished.

Is it only somebody else's problem? The population density of England and Wales not only exceeds that of India and China, but even that of industrialised nations like Japan. Along with those other industrialised nations, we consume over 80 per cent of the world's non-renewable natural resources. Scientists are already predicting the exhaustion of some of those resources by the year 2,000, with as yet no guarantee of substitutes.
Are we prepared to allow the poorer nations a larger slice of the cake? And, if we do so with such a large population density ourselves, will we suffer?

"Either the birth-rate must come down, or the death-rate will go up. No one starting a family today, who has interest in the survival and health of their children, will have any more than two." (Professor Paul Ehrlich)

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
