: Horizon

An Unholy Scramble
1974 will see the first crude oil from the North Sea coming ashore. The first of the monster production platforms are being installed: the government is doing all it can to hasten the whole operation. But what is being staked in the North Sea oil race?
Already there have been great difficulties over environmental and planning issues. Now, as the operation gathers momentum, there is new concern - safety. Conditions in the North Sea are the worst oilmen have faced. Last winter one rig was pounded to pieces, another abandoned, and three drifted off-station.
With a project of such size and national importance there is bound to be a balance of risks. Tonight's Horizon examines whether undue haste is making this balance unacceptable.

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.
