: Horizon

Tracks on the Oregon Trail
In the 1840s covered wagons carried 30,000 Americans west to find a ' Better Life'. They found it in Oregon, in the beautiful and fertile valleys of the Pacific north west. They learnt to care for their new paradise and passed on that concern to sons and grandsons.
In the 1970s new trails were blazed in Oregon; legislation has made it the most environmentally protected spot in the western world. Modern Oregon was first to clean up its polluted rivers; first to introduce a 55mph speed limit; first to require refunds not only on bottles, but on cans too; first to ban the rip-off can cap; first to give fare-free rides on city buses; first to ban poisonous herbicides. Horizon visits the state that's become the symbol for a new America. Could it be a blue-print for the rest of us? Or will the pioneers' paradise give way to the pressures of the 1980s?

: The Great Double-Bass Race

Narrated by Fritz Spiegl
While competitors are limbering up for this month's viola competition on the Isle of Man, we take a nostalgic look back at the extraordinary event that marked the island's first venture into the music competition field - the 1978 International Double-Bass Competition and Workshops: Featuring the breathtaking virtuosity of Gary Karr , the film shows what happened to the little holiday resort of Port Erin when 200 bass players dropped in. With RODNEY SLATFORD , JOHN BETHELL , NASH ENSEMBLE, WURZ-BURG DOUBLE-BASS ENSEMBLE, and SCOTTISH CHAMBER ORCHESTRA, conducted by KENNETH MONTGOMERY
It was left to the special crankiness of the English to restore some semblance of originality and gaiety.... a gem

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.
