Exhausting Arguments An investigation by Debbie Thrower
Considering a new car?
You will soon have to pay a lot more for it.
Stringent new pollution laws framed in Europe mean that from 1992 every new small car must have an expensive extra to combat exhaust fumes: a three-way catalytic converter.
Until recently, Britain favoured a cheaper approach - the lean-burn engine, designed to use less fuel and to pump out fewer noxious gases.
Then, a few weeks ago, the British government did a U-turn that will cost motorists an extra
El,000 million a year.
Debbie takes the wheel of a range of glossy cars to find out what went wrong and to ask:
Is this the most cost-effective way to clean up the environment?

: How to Make a Royal Marines Officer

Part 2
The soldiers are casually dismissing the rest of the world as 'civvies'. But no civilians would willingly undergo the final commando test that produces the coveted green beret - 30 miles across crippling Dartmoor terrain, carrying %cwt in less than seven hours. Seven hours ten minutes is, as one of them discovers, not acceptable.

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.
