: The Road

Plans to build a string of by-passes along the stretch of tarmac linking Bath with the south coast - known to some as the A36 corridor and to others as "death valley" - have provoked passionate and divisive feelings among the local communities. The former stagecoach route has been devastated by the thousands of cars and juggernauts that thunder along daily, but no one can agree what to do about them. Using testimonies of the people who live along the route, including writer Bel Mooney, this film documents the struggle over Solsbury Hill, an Iron Age fort and site of the proposed Batheaston by-pass, where protesters were dragged from the trees so that the bulldozers could do their work. Narrated by David Stafford.

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.
