The Continuing Story of Dungeness ' B '
Presented by Mary Goldring
The building of the first Advanced Gas cooled reactor power station, Dungeness ' B ', was started in 1966. Its story is one of difficulties and delay - it will not be ready until 1978 at the earliest - and it raises many questions about the planning and implementing of an energy policy, the difficulties of advanced technologies in a weak economy, and the relationships between public and private industry and the government. How can a project be so beset by misfortune and what lessons can we learn for the future?
Producer GREVILLE HAVENHAND
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.
