Daylight Robbery!
Portrait of the grey squirrel as thief.
Tight-rope walking along washing lines; scaling walls seven stories high; abseiling down wires: and jumping prodigious distances - it seems there is nothing that grey squirrels will not do to steal from garden bird feeders! But whether you love 'em or hate 'em, there's no denying they are highly successful - both as wild animals, and as urban thieves.
Jessica Holm looks at how cleverly grey squirrels have taken up the challenge of sharing our gardens and stealing food from us. Producer MIKE BEYNON BBC Bristol (R)

Factory Fresh - the Food Revolution
It began as an 'epidemic' of salmonella in eggs. It frightened consumers, cost egg producers dear, and lost Mrs Edwina Currie her job. Now it has put the record and future of British farming on trial.
To satisfy the consumers, farming and food processing have been transformed by science: but is what appears to have happened with eggs, mass-produced now by farming systems undreamt of a generation ago, about to happen with other foods as well?
Vivian White reports on the new risks of the farming and food revolution - and on the plateful of problems it presents for the Government. Producer DANIEL BRITTAIN-CATLIN Editor TIM GARDAM

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.
