: Man Alive: Aircraft Noise

Reporters Jim Douglas Henry, Jeremy James, Gillian Strickland, Desmond Wilcox,

This week: Aircraft Noise
Whether we like it or not, the volume of jet aircraft traffic screeching over our heads is going to increase and go on increasing for many years to come.
It is undeniable that aircraft are great money-spinners and dollar earners - London Airport handles more international traffic than any other airport in the world - but for those living near airports jet aircraft noise has reached almost unbearable proportions. Conversation stops; telephone calls are impossible; industry, hospitals, and schools are affected; radio and television sets are drowned out. And as air travel gets cheaper and easier, and airports all over the country expand and runways are extended, thousands more who once lived in peace and quiet find themselves under the flight path of the jet-age giants.
But is the noise absolutely necessary? How serious a hazard to our health is it? Do the airlines respect the noise limits imposed? Can jet engines be gagged without ruining performance? Is sufficient being done to control what has become known as this obscene intrusion into our private lives?

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
