: QED The Maggot Mogul

Bruce Silcock 's neighbours are less than excited about his plans to become a millionaire. Bad enough, they think, to live near his small fishing bait farm in Essex, with its pits of maggots and stench of rotting meat, but now Bruce wants to start maggot production on an industrial scale.
The Maggot Mogul follows Bruce as he seeks planning permission to build the biggest maggot farm in the world. He explains that the maggot is an environmentally useful creature - not only does it neatly dispose of the huge amounts of dead and diseased meat generated by factory farming, but Bruce has now discovered that the waste it produces makes an excellent organic fertiliser.
This is a timely discovery considering that this country is facing an environmental crisis over what we should do with the animal carcases left over from the factory farm industry. As far as Bruce is concerned, he believes this is his chance to make a lot of money. All he has to do now is run the gauntlet of reluctant planning committees and protesting locals before he can achieve his dream.
Michael Elphick narrates the extraordinary story of one man's battle to persuade his local council-and his neighbours - to appreciate and respect what must be the world's most unusual environmental saviour.

The ECYO is a unique ensemble of 140 musicians between the ages of 14 and 23 and drawn from every member state. "Working with these marvellous players has been an unforgettable experience which has enriched my life, both as a man and a musician, " says
Giulini. "They give their all in the service of music - perfect preparation and plentiful love and enthusiasm coupled with the joy of aspiringto express their individual musicality away from their own country's typical style of playing."
Tonight's broadcast in this
"first hundred years of the Proms" season is a recordingof the second half of last
Saturday's Brahms Night.
Brahms was first honoured in this traditional Proms manner-an evening dedicated entirely to his music - back in 1900. It is introduced from the Royal Albert Hall by James Naughtie. Director David Stevens

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.
