: The World About Us

The Blasted Heath
The ancient heaths of Thomas Hardy 's Wessex are a world of intrigue and living secrets. Look closely and you will see the basking adder, the secretive smooth snake, and rare sand lizards lapping the dew. You may also see and hear other rarities, the croak ing natterjack toad, the churring master of camouflage, the nightjar. Created by man, our precious fragments of wild heath are now like islands in a sea of farmland and advancing asphalt. What hope is there for the gorse and heather landscapes that brooded over the fate of Tess of the D'Urbervilles and other Hardy characters?
Narrated by Anthony Valentine

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.
