: Split Screen

Two partisan views of a controversial issue. The Mersey Barrage
Laurie Taylor presents two films made from deeply opposed positions.
Backed by Government money and private business, there is a scheme to build a barrage across the River
Mersey, to harness tidal power and create electricity. Excited by the prospect of clean, pollution-free energy, Graham Davies , a local teacher, argues the case in favour of the barrage, seeing it as the key to the economic revival of Merseyside.
The case against the barrage is put in an evocative film made with The Merseyside Naturalists Association. They foresee enormous damage being done to the shoreline, the fishing industry and, above all, the incomparable bird-life of the region. In the words of naturalist Eric Hardy , the barrage could spell 'ecological disaster'.
Both films have been made with the help of the BBC

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.
