The Last Squire of Erddig
Until last summer seven Yorkes had been squires of Erddig. Each had added to a unique collection of treasures, begun in the 17th century when the house was built near Wrexham in North Wales. But for seven years the present PHILIP YORKE has lived there alone and struggled to prevent the house from collapsing. Had it collapsed, a legend would have vanished with it. In this film he describes the legend and tells how his lifelong dream is soon to be fulfilled.

What a Waste!
Each year everyone in Britain dumps 140 bottles and 200 metal cans. Each family discards half a ton of paper. The average family throws away JElOO-worth of packaging a year. By re-cycling the rubbish instead of burning or burying it we could save millions of pounds and preserve raw materials. We have the technical know-how but apparently not the inclination.
The result in the past few months has been newspapers running out of newsprint, empty supermarket shelves, no packaging, no bottles. With energy becoming more expensive can we afford to dump seven billion bottles a year when it has cost three kilowatt hours of electrical energy to make each bottle? Simply by throwing away so many bottles, in effect we're dumping the energy equivalent of three million tons of coal a year.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
