: Brass Tacks

Eric Robson invites people to talk about issues directly concerning them.
Keep Off the Grass?
Britain's ten National Parks were set up nearly 30 years ago to save the best and most beautiful areas of our countryside for future generations. But the industrial pressures of an overcrowded island cannot ignore the mineral wealth of these protected landscapes.
Recently the Government gave the go-ahead to a major quarrying development in the Peak District - against the advice of the Peak Park Planning Board. Now an American mining company wants to mine fluorspar near picturesque Lathkill Dale.
So what is the future for our National Parks? Brass Tacks talks to industrialists, to local people who know that quarries mean not only noise and dirt, but jobs as well, and to conservationists who believe the very survival of our National Parks is at stake.
Producer BRIAN james Editor ROGER LAUGHTON
Many BBC Local Radio Stations in England are giving their audiences a chance to state their views on this issue - in phone-ins following Brass Tacks.

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.
