: The War We're in Danger of Winning

Tuesday's Documentary
' This earth is the only decent bit of real estate we've got ..."
For a week now politicians from more than a hundred nations will gather in Stockholm for the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment. The Conference's intention is to get action where before there has been only talk.
Ecologist Gordon Conway gives his personal view of the significance of this by looking at the situation of six people in Britain - a farmer in Lincolnshire; a fisherman at Whitby; an executive at ici, Billingham; a line worker at Fords, Dagenham; a housewife in Swansea; and an unemployed man on Tyneside.
What is happening, he argues, is that increasingly we are dependent on technology to get us out of trouble. But are we using it in the right way? The housewife sees ' a great wall' of industrialisation building up around her; the car worker, after his shift on the line, doesn'feel up to much else at the end of the day; and what has technology done for the man from Tyneside - except put him out of a job?
But then unemployment ... job satisfaction ... is that really anything to do with the ' environmental crisis '?

The Missing Centuries
A story of literary detection told by ROGER DELGADO
Centuries of Meditations was the name given to a book discovered in manuscript form some 250 years after it was written. Its author was clearly one of the happiest men who ever lived. But who was he?

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.

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.
