Two old ladies, both over 90, got lost in their reminiscences last night and I was lost in admiration.
Berta Ruck and Frances Jones both lived to be a hundred. Tonight we salute their memories.

: Horizon

Mr Ludwig's Tropical Dreamland
Tonight, Horizon tells the extraordinary story of the Jari project ... a private city state the size of Wales carved out of the Amazon jungle by American billionaire Daniel K. Ludwig.
While arguments rage about the destruction of the rain forest, Ludwig has cleared vast areas of jungle and replanted with the biggest man-made forest in the world ... a mixture of pine and a fast-growing tree which matures in ten short years to provide both pulp and timber. Rice and china-clay are secondary industries. The project has created a mixed community of Americans and Brazilians, already putting down roots and creating traditions.
The project raises a multitude of questions - economic, ecological and political. It's a pioneering high-risk enterprise on a scale which could only have been tackled by the richest man in the world. Narrator PAUL VAUGHAN
Written and produced by VIVIENNE KING

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.
