: Watchdog

In the European food-poisoningcharts Spain is number one, accordingto a Watchdog survey reported in this holiday special.
Using a hidden camera, environmental officers Dr Lisa
Ackerley and Graham Murphy , a husband-and-wife team, went undercover in the restaurants and kitchens of 28 Majorcan hotels to discover the unappetising truth. Of food samples taken, more than half failed to comply to local hygiene regulations.
Swimming-pool accidents are another problem. During the holiday season, a British child is taken into intensive care every week at the Son Dureta Hospital in Majorca.
And Spain is not alone. In
Crete, one hotel had more than 60 guests ill at the same time! Producer Helen Glanville

Nose to Tail
Will government plans to spend £23 billion on Britain's roads ease traffic jams or encourage more people to take to their cars? Transport secretary John MacGregor does not believe the public rejects the prospect of bigger and better roads, saying: "If they felt that strongly, they wouldn't drive as much as they do."
But former minister
George Walden MP, argues: "They [the government] have no idea where our transport policy is going other than building more and more roads for more and more cars."
With some Tory backbenchers arguing against government policy Mr MacGregor faces opposition other than banner-waving protesters.
Reporter John Penycate talks to people affected by schemes such as the widening of the M25 and M62 and to the strategists, including John MacGregor , who must tackle a seemingly intractable problem. Producer Barbara Want

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
