: Wildtrack

with Tony Soper and su INGLE
Few wildlife schemes have aroused more controversy than the project to bring back the beaver to Britain. There are weighty arguments both for and against the project. Could the beaver population get out of control? Would it destroy vast numbers of trees? What about otters and other rare mammals - would they suffer? Wildtrack launches its own investigation, and talks to the man behind the whole idea.

: Children of the Revolution: The BBC1 Documentary

Written and narrated by Julian Pettifer.
Algeria is a country of the young. It has one of the highest birth rates in the world. It boasts its own brand of Moslem socialism stemming from the bloody revolutionary war fought against the French. It is a one-party state, which bans Communism, yet trades impartially with the East and West. Independent since 1962, the struggle for economic independence and national identity still continues. As one young Algerian said, 'It is easier to destroy colonialism than build a country.' So how do the young men and women of Algeria - more than half the population is under 25-view the future? Has the promise of the revolution been achieved for them?

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.
