A series of three film reports by Trevor Philpott on The Mighty Mississippi 3: Topsville, Bottomsville
At each end of the Mississippi River there is a city. In the north, where winter means 40 degrees of frost, is Minneapolis; sophisticated Americans, with a mixture of contempt and envy, call it
Swedesville. In the south, in the steaming basin of the Delta, is New Orleans, the most romantic city in the United States; a city that every American wants to see once before he dies.

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.
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.
