: Bird's-Eye View

A Green and Pleasant Land Written by JOHN LLOYD Narrated by ALAN DOBIE
There's hardly a square foot of land in Britain that somebody doesn't own -and that somebody else hasn't got plans for. Finding room for vital new cities and industries means something has to go. How much countryside will there be at the end of this century when another 15 million of us have been squashed into it?
From the air the progress of this new Battle for Britain is even clearer. This film looks at some of the casualties so far. It features a Bird's-Eye View of the 250-mile Pennine Way which passes through much of England's most striking countryside - and through almost every kind of danger that threatens it.

: One Pair of Eyes

Mark Boxer reaches Half Way Mark
MARK BOXER is the resident cartoonist ('Marc') of The Times, and Associate Editor of the Sunday Times Magazine which he launched in 1962. At 41 he has achieved a degree of success which for many men would be the crowning point of a career. How can he continue the rest of his life without a sense of anticlimax? This question provides the theme of the programme.
Boxer trains his fastidious and ironic gaze on himself. He recalls early successes and we see a typical Boxer day at present.

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.

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.
