... by children from abroad
During the summer, children from abroad bring us memories of the countries they call home. They tell us, too, about the foreign country where they live now - Great Britain.

This week: Aircraft Noise
Whether we like it or not, the volume of jet aircraft traffic screeching over our heads will go on for many years to come.
It is undeniable that aircraft are great money-spinners and dollarearners-London Airport handles more international traffic than any airport in the world - but for those living near airports jet aircraft noise has reached almost unbearable proportions.
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 '?

: Rebel Poet

A profile of Hugh MacDiarmid
He is a minority party of one really - but what a one!
Scotland's most famous living poet, Dr C. M. Grieve (Hugh MacDiarmid) celebrates his 80th birthday this week.
In this film he talks of his uncompromising life and the ideas and circumstances that have shaped its progress. Excerpts from his poetry help to trace a pattern that has taken him from the debatable lands of the Scottish Borders, through two world wars and many peacetime years of controversy and hardship, to his present home in a farm worker's cottage. In the process, he has achieved a worldwide reputation which cuts across both national and ideological frontiers. Narrator PAUL KERMACK Reader TOM FLEMING
Producer JAMES WILSON (BBC Scotland)
(MacDiarmid at SO: Radio 3, Fri 9.55 pm; Too wild and young at 80: page 11)

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

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.
