: The World About Us

The Axing of the Himalayas 'Once man would go to the trees in a spirit of worship; now he goes with a felling axe.'
That is how
Sunderlal Bahaguna , India's 'Man of the Trees' describes the predicament in his homeland. Down in the plains, India's developing industries need timber both for the nation and for export. But they should not have it, says
Sunderlal Bahaguna , at the hill people's expense. They need the forests for their very survival!
To do something about this the villagers of the hills have established the Chipko movement. 'Chipko' means 'to embrace' - and that is what they do. When the contractors come for felling, the villagers run out and hug the trees. Producer RICHARD TAYLOR

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.
