The Second Gold Rush
Under Alaska's arctic waste the oil companies have made America's newest - and richest - strike, whose output could rival that of Libya. In two years' time, and at a cost of £2,500 million, the oil will be flowing by pipeline the 800 miles from the Arctic Ocean to Alaska's southern shore. Lured by high wages and a sense of adventure, thousands have poured into Alaska in a second Gold Rush. But that, for many of them, is where the Great American Dream has ended.
John Swinfield reports from Alaska on America's uncertain energy future.

: Leap in the Dark

The third of four programmes
Colin Wilson introduces four cases of extrasensory perception. The Battle for Miss Beauchamp written by JOHN ELLIOT and COLIN GODMAN
Early in 1898 a Boston psychologist started treating a new patient. He noted that she was quiet, reserved and almost morbidly conscientious. But he soon ! found that the gentle Christine Beauchamp harboured a second completely different personality - a childish mischievous creature who tormented poor Christine until she thought she was i possessed by a devil.
Later.a third personality appeared and Dr Prince devoted the next six years to his search for the ' real' Christine. But who was she and who were the other contenders that apparently shared the same body?

It has to be more overtime and he is already working more than the hours God sends, so he is too tired to play rugby, which presents Linda with a most unexpected dilemma.

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.
