3: Dinorwic Slate Quarry with Kenneth Hudson
Under the shadow of Snowdon stands a gaunt stone fortress but this building had no military purpose. It was, in fact, the head-quarters of the Dinorwic Slate Quarry. Here in this isolated valley was a totally self-contained industry which trained its own skilled men and maintained its own massive machines - the Welsh slate industry.

Producer: Ray Sutcliffe

A Noah's Ark for Europe
How can we save our wild animals?
As animal habitats continue to be destroyed, traditional methods of conservation could prove inadequate. We must find new and additional methods.
Threatened species like the otter, lynx, eagle owl and wolf, and many others, must be taken into captivity and bred effectively into large colonies. Some breeders have already taken the initiative and are achieving remarkable results.
The programme includes recent work with Sir Peter Scott at
Slimbridge, with Philip Wayre at the Norfolk Wildlife Park, and in zoos and animal reservations in England, Sweden and Germany. Narrator FRANK GILLARD

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.
