: Horizon: The Missing Link

According to present plans, you may be able to cross to France by Channel Tunnel in 1978 - official. But after 170 years of hopes and fears in which all plans have been killed by a mixture of claustrophobia and xenophobia, the last major obstacle is a credibility gap. Is it now at last possible that a tunnel will be built?
Horizon visits some of the most complex tunnelling projects in the world today - in America, Japan, Denmark and Mexico - to see how far we have progressed from the glorious engineering adventures of the Victorians towards what planners would like to be able to think of as precise and predictable.
But is it? Just how feasible is that 35-mile hole through the chalk from Britain to France?

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
