: Holiday 90

Driving Forces of Nature
If you missed the bus when everyone else was learning to drive, don't give up — it's never too late, as harassed mother-of-three,
Gillian Reynolds found out. She tests a week's crash course in Ross-on-Wye.
Another driving force of nature is the Victoria Falls, the mile-wide torrent of the Zambesi River. Anne Gregg wonders at it, en route to a big game safari in the unspoilt Luangwa Valley of Zambia. And to win this voyage of adventure culminating in a sybaritic week on the magical island of Mauritius, there are more clues to solve in the Radio Times Holiday 90 competition.

: Silent Revolution

Path to Plenty
Farmers have been seen by some as villains, poisoning food, damaging the countryside and growing fat on taxpayers' money. How did they get this reputation when 50 years ago they were heroes, saving us from wartime starvation?
Technology and ingenuity, plus political and financial support, transformed farming from depression and bankruptcy into a highly efficient industry. In a couple of decades they turned shortage into abundance.
This is the first of two films which trace the course of this silent revolution and its consequences for the countryside, what we eat and the way we live.

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.
