: France: 2: Considerable Chaos Has Ensued

Five programmes about the changing society of modern France

For 50 years the French population stagnated. Then came the post-war baby boom. When the products of this population explosion arrived at the conservative overcrowded universities there was another sort of explosion. The educational crisis is still unsolved.
Introduced by John Ardagh

: The High Chaparral: Wind

The High Chaparral is the home of a pioneer family in the newly won West; is the prize the settlers must hold against outlaws and Indians, and spells adventure in the wild Arizona territory of 1870.

Big John saves the life of a half-Indian boy, Wind, who has been caught red-handed rustling cattle by a group of other ranchers. As the High Chaparral prepares for a vast cattle drive a ruthless enemy strikes - and the boy repays his debt.

: Horizon: Tanks

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

Ever since the first landships arrived at the front line in 1916, disguised as water cisterns or 'tanks,' they have played a dominant part in land warfare.
In their 50-year history from tin-pot adolescence to computerised old age, tanks have demonstrated how military thinking often lags a whole generation behind technology. It took 20 years for the Army to become convinced that tanks had outmoded the cavalry and another 20 to get its design priorities straight.
With film never before seen on television, tonight's Horizon follows this 50-year history up to the present-a present in which the British Army may have an obsolete weapon on its hands without realising it.

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.
