Series of programmes made by members of the public.
The Last Straw. The Duke of Westminster may be best known for his urban interests, but his heart is rooted in the countryside. Last year he published a report, The
Problems in Rural Areas, which gathered much support among country people, but was ignored elsewhere.
In this film, he expresses his concerns for the future of rural communities as farmers are driven off the land and family farms are in decline. With four farmers a week committing suicide, rural life is far from the idyll it can seem to outsiders. Producer Sue Davidson

The second of two films on the morality of punishment. A Cure for Crime. Can punishment ever fit a crime? Back in the 1960s, some optimistic reforms set out to "cure" criminals, but often violated prisoners' rights.
Now reform regimes are less idealistic, but are they more fair? In this film, prisoners from
Britain and America speak out about their experiences. It ends on the island of Alcatraz prison, now a tourist attraction. Is there a glamour to crime that we are reluctant to take into account?

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.
