Thor Heyerdahl : the Story of a Great Adventurer

: HRH The Prince of Wales: The Earth in Balance

A Personal View of the Environment
Do we not, most of us, feel a profound, almost unconscious unease at the course we have been taking: almost as if we were living on borrowed time?
Prince Charles's film is an impassioned scrutiny of the great environmental challenges that confront us. It takes him from northern Scotland to the Indonesian rainforest, from the Kennedy Space Center to a medieval monastery outside Rome, from Hong Kong to a country house in Norfolk.
He undertakes the journey not so much to describe the environmental crisis as to examine its causes and attempt an assessment of what must be done if we are to avoid catastrophe. How can we reassert the sense of balance between man and the natural world that was once instinctive to us?
It is a challenge, he says, that we can all face together. Director James Hawes
Producer Christopher Martin

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.
