: Waterline: 2: Inland Waterways

Introduced by Cliff Michelmore

Canals may be too slow for freight, but is it worth investing public money in them for pleasure boating? Dick Tracey joins the Government adviser on inland waterways John Humphries on a canal cruise to the National Rally of Boats at Lymm in Cheshire. They examine some of the engineering achievements which made British canals famous over a century ago, and debate the case for their upkeep as leisure playgrounds in 1973. Is overcrowding and pollution of our rivers a threat to health, fishing and wildlife? At Streatley, a Thames Conservancy inspector, the head of a boat hire firm, and a yacht club chairman illustrate the growing conflict of interest on the Thames between boat owners, anglers, hikers, campers and naturalists.

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.
