Narrated by Group Captain Douglas Bader London's airport at Heathrow is nearly 25 years old. People working there remember the early days and the incredulity which greeted the announcement that the daily arrival of aircraft might, in the near future, double from ten to 20.
Today, Heathrow is a miniature United Nations with 60 countries operating from the air terminal and hundreds of planes constantly landing and taking off. Third largest port in the United Kingdom in terms of value of cargo, it is a hub of constant drama, excitement, and movement.

Does Parliament Work? Its critics feel that Parliament has been reduced from a powerful workshop, constantly challenging and checking a powerful Executive, to a mere talk-shop.
The new Administration has complemented changes in government machinery - designed to improve its own efficiency -by a redesigned system of Select Committees which, it is claimed, will increase MPs' ability to scrutinise the Executive's intentions and actions.
Is this enough? Or should Parliament redefine its role? Presented by NORMAN HUNT
Produced by BERNARD TATE
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.
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.
