: The New Battle for Britain

Beautiful and placid though it may often look, the British countryside is the result of continuing war. From the Ice Age onwards it has been a battleground between both natural and man-made forces and it has been changed in many ways. But now, with support for wildlife and wild places greater than ever. before, our landscape is up for grabs. Developers, farmers, tourists - indeed all of us - are, in effect,
'gardeners' of Britain. Tony Soper, with the help of a great island dug from peat, shaped like Britain and laid out like a garden, presents a profit-and-loss account, an AGM, to us, the shareholders in the company of Britain. Helping his assessment are David Attenborough , David Bellamy , Nick Davies , Chris Packham and Julian Pettifer. Film editor CHRIS ORRELL

No Easy Road: Michael Buerk 's South Africa
For four years, Michael Buerk reported on South Africa for
BBC Television News He saw the country at its best and at its worst He made many friends, black, white and coloured; he was also shot at, gassed, beaten, locked up, censored and finally expelled. This film is his personal story of what it was really like to live and work on the edge of a racial battleground.
When it was first broadcast last year the film received widespread acclaim. The Sunday Times called it essential viewing, and the Times a most moving and chilling film.

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.
