: Horizon: Crown of Thorns

This week's programme in the series on Man and Science Today. A quarter of the coral of Australia's Great Barrier Reef is dead, and in at least 13 Pacific islands it's dying. What is probably the greatest undersea plague in history is killing this wonder of nature.
The Crown of Thorns starfish used to live in harmonious balance with its surroundings but, over the last few years, it has exploded into herds that graze - and kill - the coral.
This film, made by both Australians and Americans on the Great Barrier Reef and the Pacific Islands, includes not only the story of the starfish but also quite extraordinarily beautiful film of the other creatures that will die if the coral goes.

: Yesterday's Witness: The Cramlington Train Wreckers

Forty-four years ago some miners went to prison for wrecking a train. There were many acts of sabotage during the General Strike, but this was one that came within inches of disaster. Most people saw it as an act of irresponsible lunacy, but the surviving miners still think they were justified.
As one of them says: '... we had to do something similar to what we did do, for to let the people see what we were getting. I would say we were slaves, we were getting starvation wages.' With ROBERT HARBOTTLE, MR and MRS WILLIAM MUCKLE,
TOMMY ROBERTS , ARTHUR WILSON, DR T. SNOWDEN BLAIKLOCK, DR J. HOPE POOL

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.
