Saving the Ozone Layer: a Profitable Business?
Environment ministers from 56 nations have been meeting in London this week to review the Montreal Protocol - an international agreement to phase out the chlorofluorocarbon gases, or CFCs, acknowledged to be destroying the earth's ozone layer. The world's major producers of CFCs are fast developing substitute gases which are claimed to be ozone friendly. Billions of pounds are at stake and experts believe this is distorting priorities. Public Eye asks whether the need for business profitability is preventing the development of cheaper and environmentally safer alternatives. With Peter Taylor and ian Breach.

: Homelands

Six films about artists struggling for the future of their homelands, often facing opposition.
Israel. As the political turmoil in Israel grows, the clear voices of writers and thinkers - like best selling author A B Yehoshua - become increasingly important. The 1967 war forced Yehoshua to confront his responsibility as a writer and to articulate through his characters the dilemmas of his nation. His conclusions about how to achieve peaceful co-existence with the Palestinians are immensely unpopular with his government, but perhaps, as a much-loved writer, his voice can be heard above the clamour of politicians.

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.
