Last report in the series on foreign affairs.
The cost of bananas is a question that is dividing Europe. Germany wants a free market with lower prices, whereas Britain is happy to pay more. But for the growers, it's a matter of life and death. While the former British island of St Lucia faces economic crisis, the environment in "banana republics", such as Costa Rica and Honduras, dominated by giant American fruit companies, has been damaged in the search for the perfect banana.

Concluding the two-part film which highlights the shortage of human organs for transplant. A Change of Heart. In last week's film a donor heart was found for Rob, but Sandra was left waiting for the transplant without which she will die. This week the story moves to the laboratory at Papworth Hospital, where medical scientists are searching for a long-term solution to the shortage of human organs. They hope to make science fiction come true by developing transgenic pigs, animals whose organs humans won't reject. But the researchers also have to face threats from animal-rights activists who are horrified by such an idea.

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.
