: Gold!

One spring morning back in 1868, a Mr Gilchrist was standing on the granite bridge in the fishing port of Helmsdale in the Scottish Highlands. Gazing down into the burn, he saw something shimmering in the water. It was gold! His discovery led to a gold rush on the Kildonan and Suisgill Burns. A shanty-town grew up for the prospectors and over fl5,000 worth of gold was recorded as having been taken from the burns. The actual sum was probably three times that amount. But in 18 months it was all gone. Or was it?
Alexander Frater sets out to discover exactly how much gold there is in Britain, talks to experts about its commercial possibilities, to the crofters who've actually found gold in the Sutherland hills and wades into the Kildonan burn to pan for gold himself. Producer JOHN KNIGHT (Revised repeat)

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.

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.
