: Assignment Lands of the Dammed

It is a common belief that not only are dams one of the best ways of providing cheap electricity and water, they also provide a boost to industry.
Roger Harrabin 's film, looking at contentious projects in India and Sri Lanka, reveals that such a view is now being challenged. Opponents say that dams destroy the habitat of both people and animals, forcing the former to leave their homes and relocate, and leaving the latter to their own devices. And the power and water the dams provide are often grabbed by rich farmers and industrialists who have plenty of it already. There is real fear too, as in the case of the Tehri Dam being built on an earthquake fault line, that dams could be the cause of the biggest man-made disaster in human history. With environmental campaigners on the offensive, dam-building schemes are now among the most controversial development projects in the world, but is the new orthodoxy as doctrinaire and blinkered as the one it replaces?

Just over a month ago, a series of 90-second films shown between programmes revealed that some of the best art in Britain is to be found in galleries, country houses and churches that are off the beaten track. This compilation features a broad range of people - from Joanna Lumley to a London cabbie - who talk about their personal favourites, including Chagall's stained glass windows for a church in Kent and a Leonardo da Vinci Madonna and child in a Borders castle.

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.
