The Future of Our Past
Every year a little more of our history is eroded as archaeological sites all over Britain are ruined. In some areas more sites have been lost since the war than in the preceding four centuries. Barry Jones. Secretary of the Rescue Trust for British Archaeology, and Peter Clayton, author and archaeologist, will welcome your comments and questions on all aspects of archaeology. What is meant by industrial and rescue archaeology? Can anyone be involved in a dig or do amateurs destroy valuable evidence? What has been lost and what can we do to preserve what remains? How much can be learnt from techniques such as aerial photography?

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.
