by DESMOND WILCOX
The characters we know from fiction who still live on today. 3: The Rancher
Earl Hardeman is a rancher in Jackson Hole, Wyoming; a beautiful valley flanked by the majestic Teton mountains. He breeds Here-ford cattle - in much the same style that his father did before him - and he lives the cowboy's life we've come to recognise in ' Westerns '. He still uses horses to ride the range and herd his cattle and pull sledges in winter; he still milks his cows by hand - and butchers his own meat.
But times have changed. The influx of tourists and speculators has caused land prices to soar to $10,000 an acre, which is still only enough land to graze just one cow - in a good year. The ' Frontier' life is under increasing pressure to capitulate to the tourist industry - and men like Earl Hardeman are holding out.

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.
