: Farming

The plough is the basic farming implement, and Dr Alan Reece of Newcastle University has spent half a lifetime studying how it works. But now he also runs a successful business designing ploughs to work 600-feet down at the bottom of the North Sea, burying oil pipelines and telephone cables.
The principles are the same, but the machines tend to be bigger-weighing up to 50 tonnes and standing 15 feet high.
Philip Wrixon talks to ALAN REECE about this unusual application of agricultural engineering and his assault on the academic ivory tower by combining teaching with running a business.

The Quarter-finals from the Guild Hall,

So far, however, the snooker season has been full of surprises and shocks and MIKE HALLETT - who beat Steve Davis in the Professional Players' Tournament - and JOE JOHNSON - who reached the final of the same event - are both capable of upsetting the form book again. JOHN VIRGO , the UK winner in 1979, should also be contesting this, if he has overcome DAVID TAYLOR.

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.
