Concrete v Countryside - the Return of the Planners?
It is estimated that the population of the UK will increase by over two million in the next decade, with a high proportion of these in London and the south east.
To cope with this, over a million new homes need to be built by the year 2001. Will they be built in an ad-hoc fashion on the outskirts of existing towns, or in new settlements planned for the purpose?
Will Green Belt land remain sacrosanct? Is developing underused farmland the answer? Tonight's programme examines the growing conflict between the demand for housing and the desire to conserve the countryside. Presented by Peter Taylor with Mike Embley.

Andrei Dementiev , 'A naked woman smoking marijuana, looking at a portrait of Stalin, pronouncing a four-letter word.' Through film clips and interviews, Arena discusses the work and problems of directors Rustam Khamdamov ,
Kira Muratova and Sergei Paradzhanov , and one of the first westerners to work on a Russian production, French film star Jeanne Moreau.
Will they be able to sell their concept to a population brought up on undemanding mass cinema?

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.
