: Great Parks of the World

with Anthony Smith
A personal journey across four continents to see some of the world's great national parks.
5: The Danube Delta, Romania
A secret world of fish and fishermen; a paradise of morning sunlight and large white birds-a final flourish of the Danube before it reaches the Black Sea. Romania's national park is the last of the true wild reserves in Europe-much of it unexplored, all of it breathtakingly beautiful. Inevitably there are conflicts between the needs of the rich and varied wildlife and the needs of the 20,000 people who live there. This film takes account of the balance that the Delta has achieved.

: The Sydney Opera House

The building that nearly was.
An Omnibus documentary about the greatest architectural extravaganza of the century.
The first public performances take place at the Sydney Opera House next week and on 20 October the Queen will attend the official grand opening ceremony. It has taken 15 troubled years to build and has cost f57 million.
A competition for the design was announced as long ago as 1955. The winning architect, JORN UTZON from Denmark, called for enormous shell-shaped roofs clad in a million glittering white tiles, soaring 221 feet above the spectacular Sydney Harbour and resting on a concrete podium mounted by a gigantic flight of steps.
This film traces the tempestuous history of the building, including Utzon's dramatic resignation in 1966 and the attempts to complete it without him. It looks also at how Australian artists and musicians are now preparing to perform there.
Those appearing include Jorn Utzon himself and Sir Ove Arup, structural engineer Edward Downes , Musical Director, the Australian Opera
Sir Robert Helpmann , co-director, the Australian Ballet, and the Sydney Symphony Orchestra conductor WILLEM VAN OTTERLOO Narrator KENNETH VAN BARTHOLD
From Sydney next Saturday: Birgit Nilsson , 11 30 am R3 Stereo; ' War and Peace,' 7.15 pm BBC2 Colour

: Parents and Children

What Shall We Tell the Parents? - about sex education An investigation by Michael Barratt
Paul Barnes and Judith Davis
Children and young people say that traditional sex education, or the lack of it, leaves them without the knowledge and understanding to cope in a society where they are open to increasing sexual pressures. But many adults still disagree on how these needs can be met, what form sex education should take, who should give it, and at what age.
Marjorie Proops , Claire Rayner and Michael Schofield talk to a group of parents, teenagers and people involved in sex education and look at some examples of current sex education material and what may be available soon.

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.
