: Man Alive: The Human Cost

A weekly programme which focuses on people and the situations which shape their lives.

They are used to death in the country, but not death on the scale of the last few weeks when disease has ravaged the dairy lands of England. The number of animals slaughtered is too big to have meaning, the cost too great yet to be measured. But it is not just a financial loss; it is the loss of a life's work, the loss of animals that have almost become pets, the sending away of children: a pervasive air of despair that is the real cost.



Producer: Heinz Kornagel
Editor: Desmond Wilcox
Editor: Bill Morton

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.
