: Horizon

The Children of Peru
In the slums around Lima children starve while Peru exports millions of tons of fish protein to feed our pigs. A large part of Peru's most fertile land is devoted to cash crops-for export. Malnutrition is widespread. Indeed research by a young English girl points to a condition far worse than anyone expected.
The spectacular high Andes are the source of the potato, one of the world's most important food crops. Yet even in Peru potatoes are too scarce and too expensive.
Tonight's Horizon asks why dramatic new discoveries in crops and animal breeding are not helping the families who should benefit, and tells the heartening story of a mountain community who, against all the odds, are determined to help themselves. Narrator PAUL VAUGHAN
Written and produced by MICHAEL ANDREWS

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.
