: In the Country

Presented by Angela Rippon
In the last of the present series Roger Lovegrove takes us to the Dee Estuary where the RSPB has recently bought 5,000 acres of salt marsh, which at this time of year is rich in wading birds; and Joe Henson visits Exmoor during the round-up of the famous Exmoor ponies-a breed which is closely related to the ancestral wild horse of Europe and which has now become a rare animal on its native moor.
Together with her other guests, Phil Drabble and Elizabeth Eyden , Angela looks at the role of conservation in the countryside, asking whether nature reserves have any wide influence on the health and wealth of our wildlife, and where we fit in. Should such reserves be ' strictly for the birds' or can we hope to enjoy them as well?

: The Lively Arts: Robert Lowell: A Life Study

'When he died, I felt that the Big Top of poetry had lost its central pole.' (Seamus Heaney)
At Robert Lowell's death in 1977, he was widely regarded as America's finest poet, indeed the finest in the language. His work had an astonishing range: from New England's puritan past, to the most intimate details of his own personal life, and the larger historical perspectives of modern America - Vietnam, the Presidency, wars and assassinations. This study of his life for the Lively Arts includes unique archive footage of Robert Lowell talking about his work and, above all, reading it. Many of his closest friends also pay tribute to the man Eugene McCarthy has called 'the poet of history in America'.

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.
