: Friday Report

Pesticides: Safe or Suspect? Intensive farming relies for its success not only on good weather but the dispersal of £350 million worth of pesticides each year.
Pesticides are a vital aid, say the farmers, for the efficient mass production of cheap food.
The agrochemical industry says it has a good safety record, but environmentalists, amid growing public concern about the potential hazards pesticides may cause to our health, claim modem farming is running on a 'chemical treadmill'.
David Lomax examines the case for and against the continued use of pesticides. He talks to people who claim their health has been badly affected by accidental contamination and investigates allegations of official secrecy surrounding the system for approving pesticides. Producer ROBERT BUFTON
Series producer PETER LOWE BBC South and East

: Public Eye

Cervical Screening - a Service at the Crossroads? Since its start, the cervical screening programme has been dogged by controversy. For years arguments have raged about efficiency and value for money.
Now there's new evidence that thousands of women are given treatment to prevent cervical cancer that is unnecessary and, in some cases, may actually harm their health.
Tonight Public Eye examines Britain's cervical screening programme and asks: are the medical criteria which determine when Britain's women receive treatment the right ones?

: Great Journeys

Eight travellers along the world's great highways. The Salt Road with writer
William Shawcross.
'To enter the Medina at Fez seemed to me to be whirled right out of the 20th century. Like Alice and the White
Rabbit, we tumbled down and round into an extraordinary medieval world.'
Author William Shawcross sets off down the old Sahara Salt Road to find the camel caravans that still draw pillars of salt out of the fiery depths of the Tenere desert. His journey brings him in contact with a sultan, some dinosaur hunters and an ancient nation struggling to survive. By the remote salt pans of Bilma he finds
Afarnou, a descendant of the fearsome Tuareg - once lords of the desert - and joins him as he hauls salt across one of the harshest trade routes in the world. Music composed by BRIAN GASCOIGNE

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.
