: Horizon

The State of the Planet
Earlier this year nearly 100 world authorities on the environment gathered in London. They included such names as Jacques Cousteau , Thor Heyerdahl , Sir Peter Scott and David Atten borough and their task was to assess what progress had been made in the ten years since the first major United Nations Environment Conference in Stockholm. This film follows their often fierce debate, and illustrates the problems the experts addressed: 2,000 kinds of vertebrate animal in danger of extinction; new urban developments that will cover another 50,000 square miles of agricultural land by the end of the century; tropical forests being chopped down at the rate of an acre per second; the human environment. especially for the world's poor, deteriorating even faster. The picture is not optimistic, so will our grandchildren find us guilty of destroying the planet's life support systems? Narrator

: Eh Joe

Continues the Samuel Beckett season.
Starring Jack MacGowran

A rare opportunity to see an early television premiere. Recorded in 1966, tonight's presentation has only one visible actor, the late Jack MacGowran who, with Patrick Magee, was one of the principal interpreters of Samuel Beckett's work. Unseen is an actress, Sian Phillips. She is the voice of a woman whom Joe once loved. He sits remembering, and his memories recall a life whose hypocrisy and faithlessness have brought tragedy - as much for Joe as for the woman.
Introduced by Martin Esslin

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.
