: Horizon: Don't Cackle Lay Eggs

Tonight's film was shot entirely in Holland. Its title is the translation of a Dutch proverb, for since 500 BC the Dutch have been forced to get down to inventing ingenious methods to keep out the sea.
Today seven million Dutchmen live below sea level and their safety lies in the hands of their engineers. After the disastrous floods of 1953 when 2,000 people were drowned, the Dutch decided to spend £350-million on the most ambitious scheme they have ever undertaken. With sea dams, they are sealing off 435 miles of coast-line in the Rhine estuary and turning the area into freshwater lakes. In addition they are using their skill to expand the port of Rotterdam -already the largest in the world-further into the North Sea by creating artificial land and deep water anchorages. Can Britain take a leaf out of the Dutch book and get down to building a similar modern port-or will we continue to use up valuable time with enquiries?

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.
