: The World About Us

The Silk Spinners
This week's programme in the series of films from all over the world about our astonishing planet.
The life history of a moth makes a fascinating story, and some of the larger and more brightly coloured ones have an additional attraction in that they produce silk for the cocoon in which they undergo their final metamorphosis.
One species in particular has been used by man for the production of silk, originally in the Far East and later in the West. The story of this sericulture is as intriguing as the natural history of the moths themselves.
Natural history sequences filmed by GERALD THOMPSON and ERIC SKINNER
Commentary by ALAN GIBSON
Presented by SUZANNE GIBBS (from BBC South and West)

: A Year in the Life

for Thamesmead,
Town for Tomorrow
June 1968 - June 1969
At Erith on the South Bank of the Thames the marshes are to be a wasteland no more. Thamesmead, a new town to house 60,000 people, is in creation.
A project this size may face many problems through the year. Delays due to weather, errors in design, difficulties in management, strikes. How will the contractors cope? Will the young couple hopeful for their new home have the promise kept, or must they wait while a thousand and one problems are solved in the building of ' Thamesmead, Town for Tomorrow'?

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.
