: Survivors

A new view of us. Tale of a Plague
They invade Africa like millions of robots from outer space. They are the biblical 'eighth plague' - locusts.
This is the story of the biggest invasion for 30 years as it hits a continent already devastated by drought, famine, war and disease. But can we really blame nature for Africa's problems? Experienced partly from the locusts' point of view, the film shows how, despite climate, predators and chemical attack, locusts are ultimately winners.

The Winter of Perestroika
As crises mount for President
Gorbachev, what about the Russians - the people who will ultimately determine the fate of his revolution?
Panorama has spent a month of the Russian winter in Leningrad where, as Gavin Hewitt reports, the people are increasingly disillusioned with reform, or perestroika.
Passports are now required to buy food; organised crime flourishes and anti-semitism is re-emerging.
Politically the city is split. While the hardline
Communist leadership in Leningrad calls for a return to order, reformers are demanding a multi -party system.
For President Gorbachev the Russian winter blows cold. Producer JENNY CLAYTON 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.
