: The Commanding Sea

Six voyages with Clare Francis Narrated by Laurence Olivier 5: Harvest
Clare Francis travels into the North Sea with the largest steel oil platform ever built. She follows its trials and dangers in the search for oil. The North Sea is a crucial testing ground for the proper management of our decreasing resources. Above all it is a challenge to human survival in one of the world's harshest environments.
The film nicely captures the terrible duplicity of the sea as benefactor of mankind and monstrous killer. Yet, perhaps more than ever before, we understand just how vital the sea is to our survival (DAILY EXPRESS) Principal advisers

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.
