As February ends off
Canada's North Atlantic coast, it's the birth season for harp seals. The pups known as whitecoats enter a world of ice and snow - from the warmth of their mother's womb to sub-zero temperatures, a difference of almost 50 degrees Celsius. This film by Norman Lightfoot looks at the survival strategy of the baby seals in coping with the harsh environment. They really need their 'whitecoats'. BBC Bristol (R)

: MacGregor's Verdict

In his first major television interview,
Sir Ian MacGregor , the controversial businessman who led the Coal Board during the miners' strike, talks to Martyn Lewis about his decisions, which dramatically affected the lives of thousands of British workers. Sir Ian retired from a successful career in America as head of one of the world's largest multi-national companies at the age of 65. Hehasspentthepastten years Pursuing his mission to make Britain's ailing nationalised industries more competitive - first on the board of British
Leyland, then as Chairman of British Steel and, until recently, at British Coal.
At his Scottish home, Sir Ian talks about: foreign backing for the motor industry; the contrasting quality of management at the Steel and Coal Boards; disagreements with Energy Secretary, Peter Walker ; the dangers of the 'Porgy and Bess' syndrome and the 'plastic bag' joke which misfired.
Lady Sibyl MacGregor recalls her concern for the effect the strike had on miners' families. Videotape editor KENNETH CONNELL Research PATRICIA CAMPBELL Editor ELWYN PARRY JONES

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.
