Foreign Policy - What Choices For Britain?
There are now few areas left In the world for which Britain has any direct responsibility. Yet we are obviously affected by events across the globe. Do we still have sufficient power to influence those events? To what extent and how far should our foreign policy be integrated with our European partners?

The first of five repeated programmes on a theme of nature
The River That Came Clean
Do you really love your local river? What do you expect to find there - leaping salmon ... or stinking mud?
Britain's inland rivers are the cleanest in the world; our estuaries are among the foulest.
But one great British estuary has come clean - the Thames.
A century ago Disraeli called the Thames ' a Stygian pool reeking with intolerable horrors'. Forty thousand Londoners died of cholera from drinking infected river water. Only 20 years ago the Thames, at low tide, smelled of bad eggs from Westminster to Woolwich. Ships gleaming white for the Festival of Britain turned black as hydrogen sulphide attacked their lead-painted hulls. The Thames salmon vanished for over a century.
Now the salmon is cautiously coming back. Its return has become a standard for measuring river pollution.
So how did the Thames become the cleanest metropolitan river in the world? Horizon looks at an environmental story that actually succeeded.

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.
