: The Richard Dimbleby Lecture

HRH The Duke of Edinburgh gives the 17th in this series of annual lectures:
Living off the Land
Prince Philip, for many years an active landowner as well as an outspoken conservationist, puts the present anxiety over food and farming methods into a global context.
Man has always exploited nature, but we cannot go on defying the laws of nature indefinitely. The effects of sustaining an ever increasing population are now causing the biggest of all external disturbances to the ecology of this globe.
The lecture is introduced by Marmaduke Hussey ,
Chairman of the BBC, and is given before an invited audience at the Brewery,
Chiswell Street, in the City of London.

: Film 89

Barry Norman presents his personal review of the week's cinema releases.
Dangerous Liaisons - Glenn Close and John Malkovich star in the screen version of Christopher Hampton 's successful stage play. British film maker Stephen Frears directs this 18th-century tale of sexual power games. The Modems - set in the heady atmosphere of colourful art deco bistros in 1920s Paris, the story revolves around a group of American ex-patriates including Keith Carradine , Linda Fiorentino and John Lone.
Working Girl - is a comedy about the professional and sexual ambitions of Sigourney Weaver , a high powered business executive, and Melanie Griffiths , her secretary. Harrison Ford plays the man in the middle. Film 89 meets the principal actors in this hugely successful 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.

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.
