from 9.20am A Green and Pleasant Land?
Britain can afford to be proud of its countryside - but for how long? Do we treat this scarce national asset with enough care and consideration? Our land provides us with food - and, increasingly, with leisure space. But in a hungry world, can we justify wildlife reserves and National Parks? What can those who use the countryside for recreation do to keep it green and pleasant?

The part of Patty Hearst in the trial scenes played by Nicolette Marvin
When 19-year-old newspaper heiress Patricia Hearst was kidnapped in 1974 by a group of terrorists calling themselves the Symbionese Liberation Army, it was plain that her life was in jeopardy. It was the first revolutionary kidnapping in the history of the USA. And when the trial of Patty Hearst began on 4 February of this year, the first time ever that a victim had been charged with aiding her kidnappers to rob a bank.
The story of Patty Hearst is one of the most intriguing of our age.
Included in the programme are the recorded voices of PATTY herself; the strange leader of the SLA - black, ex-convicted FIELD-MARSHAL CINQUE; her parents CATHERINE AND RANDOLPH HEARST ; and many others connected with what America has called the ' trial of the century.'

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.
