: Look, Stranger

Cricket at the Spout
For centuries the AINSLEY family has kept a pub at Spout House, Bilsdale, North Yorkshire. If love of cricket was never written into the conditions of the licence, perhaps it should have been, because cricket is as important as ale at the Spout, and always has been.

: Horizon: The Neglected Harvest

Wood is man's oldest material; it is also becoming one of the most expensive. Timber cost Britain £1,200-million last year; by the end of the century it could be twice as much. Already it is our third biggest import and prices have soared. Even a pencil costing 3½p four years ago, today costs double. Wood, after years of neglect, is needed again - desperately. But the forests of the world cannot cope.

Tonight's "Horizon" looks at what possibilities are left to us in Britain. Can we afford to be fussy about environment and landscape problems at a time like this? Should we be growing more or less timber at home? Can the enormous expertise of British Forestry help? Forestry is a long-term business; every tree needed in the year 2000 is already in the ground. Horizon asks if it is already too late to prevent a world timber crisis.

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.
