: Brass Tacks

First the arguments, then your chance to join the debate on What We Don't Like to See Beside the Seaside.
Over the next four months millions of us will be heading for Britain's beaches and promenades: we shall leave litter; we may find sewage. Most resorts clean up our litter, but may still discharge raw sewage direct into the sea, near bathing areas.
To eliminate inherited problems of outdated systems around our holiday beaches would cost hundreds of millions of pounds. It can be done, but are we prepared to pay? Brass Tacks talks to local authorities, residents and holidaymakers in Scarborough and Bournemouth about the problems, and starts to debate about possible solutions. Introduced by Eric Robson
If you icant to take part in the Brass Tacks debate, either phone a participating BBC radio station immediately after the programme (details on the air and on Local Radio pages of RADIO TIMES) or write to Return Call, Brass Tacks. BBCtv, Oxford Road, Manchester [Postcode removed]

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.
