: In the Country

Pigeon
To farmer Joe Henson , the pigeon in the country is public enemy number one. Looking into the past he finds, however, that it used to be a very different pigeon that pestered the peasant farmer. Today that pigeon lives in our cities and some of them hold endless fascination for flyers and fanciers. Pigeon racing is one of the most popular participant sports in the country and every summer Saturday in Clay Cross and countless other Northern towns, flyers eagerly await their birds to come back from the race. But there's another pigeon sport where the birds stay at home-circling the loft - and the fanciers do the travelling round the country.

How far is Mrs Thatcher justified in her belief that the balance is not yet right? Steve Bradshaw reports

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.
