Bill Symonds , Cider Maker and Country Gentleman
Bill Symonds was plied with cider in the cradle, nearly drowned in a vat of it as a child and when, in later years, his bank manager and accountant advised him to follow other small cider makers and go bankrupt, he responded with the logic of a strong character fortified by the brew and sacked them both. Tied less in old age to mill and orchard, he has become ambassador at large, on horseback or in ancient limousine, for the spirit of cheerful insobriety which his family have fostered in Herefordshire for 250 years.

Goodbye Gutenberg
Presented by Anthony Smith
In Japan the development of a voice-controlled word processor will revolutionise their offices. in Sweden ' text inspectors' have to check on any illegal entries on computer files. In the USA the way information is filtered to the President in the White House is radically changing. In Britain Prestel can supply all kinds of information into our homes and offices.
All these form part of an' information revolution ' as dramatic in its effect as Gutenberg's printing press in medieval society. As more and more words fly free of the printed page and are processed and stored in computers, this film looks at existing examples of the new information technology and its effect on democracy, national boundaries, language, bureaucracy and privacy.
ANTHONY SMITH examines some of the more far-reaching and subtle effects of the new information age. He asks: Can we foresee any of the cultural changes that lie ahead, and can we know what the haze of electronic pulses I will do to our way of life?'

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.
