Alaska - Oil on the Rocks
When the Exxon Valdez ran aground off the coast of Alaska last March, it was the worst oil spill in American history. Now the implications may affect the future of America's entire oil industry. Robin Denselow reports on the angry debate where the oil men and environmentalists are in direct conflict.
The companies are poised to develop America's last wilderness, Alaska's
Northern Arctic shore.
The oil men say drilling is essential for a supply of cheap oil. But, after the disaster, there is increasing pressure to keep them away. Producer HELEN JENKINS Editor TIM GARDAM

: Psst - the Really Useful Guide to Alcohol

Presented by Gaz Top and Dr Marsha Morgan. Alcohol and Women
The age of sexual equality has helped to create a lucrative new market for the drink industry - that of the young female drinker.
Unfortunately, for these women nature has dealt them the losing hand - women's bodies are not able to withstand alcohol in the same way as men's.
This programme explains why this is so, what guidelines apply during pregnancy and whether booze can affect conception. With the help of comedy sketches featuring Rowan Atkinson , Griff Rhys Jones , Helen Lederer , Susie Blake , Moray Hunter and John Docherty , Norman Lovett and Patricia Routledge. Graphics PETER LOAM Script editor ABI GRANT

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.
