: Lothersdale An Image of England

written by PATRICK O'DONOVAN Narrated by Michael Parkinson
It is a tiny village in the Yorkshire Pennines yet it was already established when the Domesday Book was compiled. Its land was farmed by Vikings and usurped by Normans; today its farmers grapple with the Common Market. It has sent men to the wars from Agincourt to Alamein. 'Nobody's ever heard of Lothersdale' says a local farmer. But if the spirit of England is alive and flourishing it is in a place like this. With the voices of: Olive Gregg and Vernon Joyner

: Tomorrow's World at Large

Warning: space can damage your health Peter Macann reports from Houston, Texas, on the sinister side of space travel.
Weightlessness produces puzzling effects in the body. Some, like space sickness, are merely uncomfortable; others affect the astronaut's heart, muscles and bones. They may even cause permanent damage. The race to find solutions is now more urgent after President Reagan's announcement that NASA will launch a manned space station in 1992. Peter Macann risks life, limb and lunch as he
-floats weightless
-spends a day seeing backwards
-and is strapped into a washing machine all in an effort to decide whether space flight too should be given a government health warning.

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.
