: Bellamy's New World

A series of eight films exploring America and its botanical history. 4:lf You Go Down to the Woods ... Many surprises are waiting for David Bellamy as he takes part in the 200-millionth Appalachian spring: what is the mysterious Oriental connection? What is the strangler from the East? How could a foreign body destroy all of the American chestnuts? There are clues among the mosses, the flowering plants and even the salamanders. And as the leaves turn colour in the fall, he finds that the bounty of these woodlands once supported much more than an enormous serpent and a line of marching bears ...

Farmers We Can't Afford
Presented by Richard Lindley
Like the rest of Europe, we've encouraged our farmers to produce more food than we can eat by giving them more public money than we give to any other industry.
They're a success story all right - but at the taxpayers' expense.
Agriculture is about to bankrupt the Common Market, but the member governments still can't agree what to do. Will they now face up to the farmers we can no longer afford?

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.
