: Scenario - the oil game

Are you planting food in your back garden yet? Is the present talk of disaster all nonsense? Just how bad are things going to be over the next ten years? Are the Arabs going to own everything? Will North Sea oil save us?
These are some of the questions James Burke and the Scenario teams are going to be looking at in the University of Lancaster tonight. Aided by expert advisers two teams will play through the various scenarios of events likely to happen in the near future. But which scenario is the most likely? The teams - representing the Oil Producers and the British - will ' game out' action and counteraction as they probe the available futures seeking the most effective set of decisions open to us in Britain. And one of the scenarios is our future.

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.
