: HORIZON

Man and Science Today
THE YEARS OF THE LOCUST
When this programme was first screened in January, The Times reviewed it as a ' fascinating nightmare of the locusts ... women rushing into their fields, flapping pieces of cloth, made a macabre but marvellous ballet.'
A plague of locusts: few natural disasters provoke more distaste, more horror, more fear, than this great biblical threat. But now, once again, locusts are on the move. From India to West Africa and from the Mediterranean to Tanzania there is a real threat of plague.
The desert locust has been in recession for several years, but for some two years now it has been breeding quietly, unseen, in the vastness of the Empty Quarter in Southern Arabia, in the southern Sahara, and along the shores of the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden. Huge swarms appeared last spring and summer and by the autumn the experts were prophesying the worst plague for many years--a plague that could threaten one-fifth of the land surface of the world and threaten the food supplies of millions of people.
A Horizon unit spent several weeks filming at the ' storm-centre ' of the plague in Ethiopia. Narrated and produced by ANTHONY ISAACS

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.
