The Last Squire of Erddig
Until the summer before last 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.

The Sickly Sea
Three million British holiday-makers will have invaded the Mediterranean by the end of the summer-their minds on pleasure, little caring that their beautiful playground is becoming an international slum. Viral-hepatitis, typhoid and cholera are now endemic around the Mediterranean; over 90 per cent of domestic sewage reaches the sea untreated; heavy metals like mercury and lead are poisoning the fish; oil is discharged, legally, at the rate of 300,000 tons a year - all this in a sea that is tideless and virtually enclosed.
How sick is the sea? It has always cured itself in the past. Is there any immediate danger for the holiday-maker? Scientists cannot agree about the severity of the disease but the symptoms are all too clear. Will the Mediterranean become a marine desert? Environmentalists like Lord Ritchie-Calder think it could, within a generation. Are the horror stories exaggerated? Scientists like David Bellamy think they may be. All agree something has to be done, and done fast. Narrator PAUL VAUGHAN

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.
