Glass or pvc? Corrugated or plain? Barn or Cloche? Peter Seabrook and Arthur Billitt compare the pros and cons of some of the bewildering number of cloches now on the market, and put them to good use over early sowings of salad crops and other vegetables. In the greenhouse Peter takes cuttings of chrysanthemums and makes further sowings of summer bedding plants.

: Horizon: Dawn of the Solar Age

Suddenly there is an explosion in solar research. It began three years ago and is accelerating fast. Huge mirrors are collecting the sun in Tokyo and Denver. Giant windmills are beginning to turn in Ohio. Engineers are already testing the tools astronauts will use in space when they build a 50-square-mile satellite that will radiate solar power down to Earth. Most surprisingly, huge machines designed to sit in the tropical seas and extract power from the hot water are about to be built. Much of the work is in America and Japan but Britain is closely involved - we have, it seems, already developed the necessary technology.

But can any of these techniques be ready for when oil becomes scarce in 15 or 20 years? Will any of them be cheap enough to displace nuclear power or coal from our energy future? Some of the answers are dazzling!

: Barbra Streisand

in conversation with lain Johnstone
Since she sprang to prominence 13 years ago in the Broadway musical Funny Girl, Miss Streisand's career has been a combination of success and controversy.
Golden Discs, Golden Globes, an Oscar for Best Acitress, vast audiences and often unprecedented hysteria have accompanied her continuing rise. But also a reputa'tion for being fractious, aloof, autocratic, and less than lovable.
In her latest film, A Star is Born, she had a much-'publicised row with her director who in turn wrote a venomous article about her and her boyfriend Jon Peters , whom she made executive producer.
In this interview, she talks about these and other matters.

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.
