Kielder Water is the newest and largest man-made lake in northern Europe. In May HM The Queen performed the opening ceremony. The spectacular engineering works to raise the giant dam and bore the huge tunnels which will carry water to the industries of Tyneside and the Tees, represent a remarkable achievement of modern engineering.

: Luc Doublet
Armistice Day in Lille, the industrial heart of north-east France. LUC DOUBLET is at the ceremony torn between feelings of sadness at the memory of those who died and pride in the fact that his flags are draped all over the city. Doublet runs a small family firm which makes flags and products from steel tubing. In a region where factories are closing and unemployment is high, his business is booming.
Luc Doublet is a lively, self-confident and entertaining man. His appearance, wife and house conform to his idea of the perfect French lifestyle. He has a strong sense of family and an equally strong interest in food. On Armistice Day he makes a chocolate cake for the family lunch, as his
93-year-old grandfather remembers the 1914-18 war and the joy he felt when the Armistice was signed. Narrator MICHAEL DEAN

What's to be Done with the Docks? A special community debate from Wapping Sports Centre with David Rappaport and Juliet Blake The once great London docklands may be becoming an urban waste-land but they are still home for large communities desperate for better housing and more jobs. To provide these, the Government has set up the London Docklands Development Corporation which aims to regenerate the inner city with private capital, and many imaginative studies have already been commissioned. Will these schemes drive out the communities?

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.
