: Horizon: Water, Water

This week's programme in the series on Man and Science Today.

It's almost inconceivable, with our climate, that we should be in danger of a water shortage. Yet some areas already suffer a semi-drought every summer, industrial development is threatened, and the situation is certainly going to get worse.
There is, of course, no shortage of rain here, but most of it runs to waste down our rivers, and with land at such a premium the construction of new reservoirs can no longer be expected to match the increasing demand. There are alternatives, numbers of them, but each provides the engineers and scientists with a complexity of problems.
Controlling the flow of a river may radically change, even destroy, its wildlife. Placing barrages across our biggest estuaries like the Wash and Morecambe Bay may do the same and more. At Morecambe they are investigating the very real possibility that the ports of Heysham and Barrow-in-Furness may be silted up completely.
Tonight's Horizon looks at the work of our scientists as they try to unravel the problems of providing us with more water.

: Spain Is Different: 1: ...And the Sky is Blue

Spain is women
Spain is bulls
Spain is guitars
Spain is horses
Four faces of Spain observed by Terence Carroll

Travel posters sell a deliciously sunny image of a scorching country with blue skies and even bluer seas - but that is tourist Spain. Terence Carroll lived in Andalusia ten years ago and this first film of the series is his personal view of the 'new' Spain he returned to earlier this year.
Written and narrated by Terence Carroll

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.
