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

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