: The Big Eat

Tuesday's Documentary Food, Glorious Food
Food is a necessity of life that has become a major pleasure industry. We eat 70,000 tons of it each day...
Home cooking is going the way of sewing and knitting-a dying craft. We make up for it in Britain by being Europe's biggest eaters of frozen and tinned foods. We are illogical and ill-informed when it comes to choosing our foods. For instance, many of us believe a full feeling after a meal is the same as nutrition. We eat seven or eight times our own weight in a year. Our consuming passion has made the food industry the biggest in Britain. We're sitting targets for food men on the lookout for gaps in the social scene for which they can dream up a profitable new food.
The film looks at our changing eating habits. It follows a typical new food from birth in the experimental kitchen to the first test-marketing among unsuspecting provincial shoppers. Written and narrated by PAUL FERRIS

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.
