On Tintock Tap by DOROTHY HAYNES
Read by Mary Riggans
Tinto was a hill we had grown up with. In the distance it was a placid hump with a pimple of a cairn on top, but after I was lost on it, in the lonely silence of the mist, my vision of the mountain was never the same again. Producer ALLAN G. ROGERS BBC Scotland

: Analysis

The State of The Soviet Union
The doubts over Soviet commitment to the policy of detente, the increasing influence of the military in party affairs, and the poor Russian grain harvest in 1975, will cause observers to watch the 25th Soviet Communist Party Congress later this month with even keener interest than usual. What changes will be discerned in party policies? What shifts in the internal power balance?
Brian Beedham discusses the state of the Soviet Union with Sir Thomas Brimelow , who has just retired as Head of the Diplomatic Service; Professor Alee Nove , Director of the Institute of Soviet and East European Studies at the University of Glasgow; and Professor John Erickson of Edinburgh University.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
