: Horizon

The Canal in the Jungle
The Panama Canal, now a billion-dollar commercial crossroads, was in 1881 a snake-infested forest and swamp, harbouring yellow fever and malaria, with sawgrass that shredded skin like a razor. When the jungle beat Old World canal diggers from France, engineers from the brash young United
States took over, fired by the success of their new transcontinental railroad.
Of the half million workers, who toiled for decades to create this new wonder of the world, 28,000 died.
Today the canal carries
12,000 ships a year. But its future is threatened, because of damage to the rain forest on which Panama depends. Narrator Paul Vaughan Produced for WGBH, Boston by CARL CHARLSON

: Split Screen

Two partisan films about a controversial issue. Zoos
Animal welfare and conservation have become major public issues in the last ten years. Tonight's Split Screen presents an unusual argument between people who claim to represent the best interests of wildlife.
Zoo Check, founded by Bill Travers and Virginia McKenna , argue that it is
'unacceptable that animals should be suffering the deprivations of captivity in the name of entertainment.' But the National Federation of Zoos believe that 'without zoos having an ark function in breeding endangered species there would be no animals to put back into the wild.' Film editors
ROY SHARMAN. BERYL WTLKINS Film directors
STEVE CONNELLY. STEPHEN SAUNDERS Series producer ROBIN GUTCH
Both films have been made with the BBC Community Programme Unit

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.
