: The World About Us

The last of three programmes on the marine world. Feast or Famine
Introduced by Tony Soper
A modern purse net could easily engulf St Paul 's Cathedral. It can take hundreds of tons of fish in one swallow and is just one of the high technology tools used by fishermen hunting for the dwindling resources around our coasts. The vast shoals of herring have all but gone from the North Sea; the new bonanza is the silver mackerel to the west of Britain. But are they doomed to follow the herring's decline?

Syon House
Hannah Gordon is Arthur Negus 's guest in this, the second of eight programmes.
The interior of Syon House is a tribute to the talent of Robert Adam as both designer and architect. The magnificence and theatrical panache of some of his schemes contrast with the cool restraint of others.

: The Man Alive Debate

Is Fat a Feminist Issue?
According to Susie Orbach it is. She claims that as a result of her bestselling book, thousands of women have stopped being compulsive eaters and thrown away their diet sheets.
According to Weight Watchers, fat is not a feminist issue; fatness is the same problem for men and women and dieting is the best way to cope with it.
Susie Orbach , with Clair Chapman and Katina Noble of the Spare Tyre Theatre Group, meet Weight Watchers from the Midlands and North in the Grand Hotel, Manchester, to argue their case.

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.
