: Thirty-Minute Theatre: A Nice Cool Pad in the Sky

by Graham Seal
with Glynn Edwards as George Harris, Donald Gee as Bob Crane, Denise Buckley as Barbara

George Harris is among the biggest and most ruthless tycoons. He is about to celebrate the twenty-fifth anniversary of his company by clinching an important take-over bid. But there is something about this day of all days which is not right. His secretary seems oddly dressed, the typing pool is deserted, and there is Bob Crane. He has come unannounced for an interview. Normally Harris wouldn't bother, but today he can afford to be generous. It turns out, also, to be the day he makes the biggest mistake of his life.

Director: James Brabazon
George Harris: Glynn Edwards

: Horizon: Muck Today, Poison Tomorrow

Horizon - Man and Science today

The farms and factories of the thrusting western nations have doubled and trebled their output in a decade. But many scientists warn that increasing production and increasing population threaten the world we live in. Waste products, already a nuisance in densely populated areas, could be a danger in the foreseeable future, poisoning the air we breathe and the water we drink.
A Horizon unit has filmed scenes in parts of Britain where pollution is a problem now, and a possible menace tomorrow. In the studio, representatives of science, industry, and government discuss their attitudes to these examples of an environment under attack.


Narrator: Christopher Chataway
Editor: R. W. Reid
Producer: Dick Gulling

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.
