: Come Fishing

for Spring Salmon with Eric Stevens.
Salmon can be caught in Scotland almost the whole year round. But the spring salmon are really the anglers' delight, gleaming silver, and full of fat from their sea feeding. And where better to catch them, or to try to catch them, than the river Findhorn in the county of Moray.

: Money at Work: Selling Britain Short?

Tourism is Britain's fourth largest industry, and our biggest single earner of American dollars. Each year foreign visitors and home tourists spend £1,800-million on holidays in Britain. It's more than the cost of the Health Service. But all is not well: last summer fewer Americans came to these shores. Those who did come spent worryingly little.
Does the tourist get a square deal? And does the tourist industry need a full-time Minister of Tourism? Are we selling Britain short?
Presented by Brian Widlake with Paul Griffiths, Robert McKenzie.

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.
