Experts now believe that inactivity is as dangerous as smoking
20 cigarettes a day, so it is a disturbing thought that today's children use up 25 per cent fewer calories than they did in the 1930s. If their lifestyle isn't changed, these couch potato kids will be susceptible to heart attacks at an early age and may cause a major national health crisis in years to come.
Justin Wallace , who works for
St Edmundsbury Borough Council leisure services department, was so shocked by statistics such as these that he made this programme, The Kids Aren't
Alright. In it he charts the impact of modern sedentary lifestyles not just on young people but on all our health prospects.
Wallace, who has two children himself, describes today's young people as being "battery-reared rather than free-range", partly because of the increased use of cars but also as a result of parents' fear of street crime and violence. In little more than a generation, we have taught our children to watch television rather than go out, and to expect danger from all strangers and strange environments. The combination, he says, is a recipe for trouble. Producer Mike MacCormack Senes producer Sue Davidson

In the programme this week, David Stafford goes bird-watching when he visits
Grassholm Island, ten miles off the Pembrokeshire coast in South Wales. The island is home to some 30,000 pairs of gannets - birds with a wing span of six feet and a prodigious appetite. The birds are aggressive creatures but mate with the same partner for life. Back on the mainland,
Ray Mears offers advice to hikers whose backpacks give way miles from nowhere. Also,
Rachel Polkinghorne learns about the Highland Clearances, one of the most traumatic events in Scottish history.
Finally, there is advice from Mr Crabtree when he goes fishing for carp. Producer Kathryn Moore
Series producer Colette Foster

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.
