: Horizon: Due to Lack of Interest Tomorrow Has Been Cancelled

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

"We may be very much like the dinosaur shot in the hind brain. In other words, dead, but we don't know it yet." (Professor Paul Ehrlich)
In the once Golden State of California, oranges and lemons can no longer be satisfactorily grown within 100 miles of cities. Nearby, a million trees in a national forest have mysteriously died. In the Pacific breeding grounds of the giant seal the females have been inexplicably battering their young to death. All these incidents, the direct results of man's activity, are featured in this film. What do they signify?
To scientists like Professor Ehrlich these are not the inconvenient results of thoughtless, perhaps temporary pollution; they indicate the total, often irreversible destruction of the very biological systems on which we ourselves depend. But just how justified are their fears? Does the evidence really add up to so total a disruption of nature as they suggest?
Tonight's Horizon examines whether these are just isolated incidents or whether they link up into a warning system for the kind of disaster that scientists like Professor Ehrlich predict.

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.
