The traditional rural way of life is threatened by the harsh economic realities of today's agricultural industry. But it's not really the farmers' fault. Land is a valuable investment commodity. When a farmer's fields become a banker's hedge against inflation the costs rise higher than the crops. The pressure is on the landowner to farm his own land. The pressure is on the farmer to get bigger and more mechanised. Farms and jobs disappear, and sometimes whole villages with them. What can be done to stop the rot, and to give young farmers and farm-workers a chance? Members of the rural community of Lincolnshire gather together to ask
Whose Land is it Anyway?
This is the second of six programmes giving a local issue a national hearing.

: The Electric Revolution

The fourth of seven Chronicle films If it's not old, it can't be historic - or can it? The demolition of the Firestone factory last year caused a major public uproar and a new list of protected buildings of architectural and historic merit which for the first time were drawn from the 20th century. Many of these buildings, like the late-lamented Firestone, were constructed for industry.
Kenneth Hudson investigates the major industrial revolution which they represent, a revolution which far outscales that of any previous epoch and which, for anyone looking for its monuments, is almost over.

: Personal Pleasures with Sir Hugh Casson

A series of six programmes. 2: Portmeirion
Many who see this fantastic village for the first time wonder if they have not walked straight on to a film set, and with good reason: the famous TV series The Prisoner was shot in Portmeirion.
Sir Hugh Casson 's first visit was many years ago. when it was still an overgrown plantation. He has seen this architectural dream-village grow slowly over the years out of wild terrain, and in this film he explores the place which still delights him and talks of his friend and architectural colleague SIR CLOUGH WILLIAMS-ELLIS , the man who conceived and built , it.

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.
