A report by Christopher Brasher
Once, the people of the Highlands and Islands of Scotland owed their allegiance to one lord - the Lord of the Isles. Now, in the 1980s, things are very different. A report from the misty Isle of Skye, where in the past few years several thousand acres have changed hands.
The new lairds are a very mixed bunch - a merchant banker, a government agency, a Dutch cattle dealer and an internationally famous rock star.
CHRISTOPHER BRASHER meets some of the new landlords, finds out how they are managing their new estates and asks whether or not some control should be exercised over wilo can become a laird.

The top events, personalities and stories in sport, featuring tonight:
International Football from Wembley
England v Spain
Spain, host nation for the 1982 World Cup finals, will provide a difficult test for Ron Greenwood 's side before the crucial qualifying match against Romania next month. But England's record against the Spaniards is good: they have won the last seven internationals in succession, the latest by two goals to one, during the European Championship finals
Spain's Luis Maria Arconada comes to Wembley for the first time with a reputation as the continent's best goal-keeper. Can he keep out England's forwards? Commentator BARRY DAVIES
As well, news of how other home countries fared in their World Cup games today. In Glasgow, Scotland were in action against Northern Ireland in a match which could decide which of them qualifies from Group 6; while in Group 3 Wales, with maximum points from three games so far, were playing Turkey in Ankara. The Gillette London Marathon
The first-ever running of this event has attracted a huge entry from athletes of all ages and abilities. The total of 7,500 runners will line up in Greenwich for the start of the 26 mile 385 yard chase through the streets and parks of London. Brendan Foster looks ahead to Sunday's race, and recalls some of the epic moments in marathon history.

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.
