Backyard Farming
Many more people are turning to producing their own food and keeping their own livestock. John Seymour runs a self-sufficiency school in Wales, and Elizabeth Downing keeps a variety of animals on her smallholding in Norfolk. You can telephone them to ask advice on what you can do if you have a backyard, a small plot of land, or just a few acres; on what regulations exist for keeping livestock; on what breeds to go for; and on the benefits and responsibilities of becoming more self-sufficient.
In the Chair Jill Burridge Produced by the Woman's Hour Unit

Sutherland in Wales
On the eve of his 74th birthday, the artist Graham Suther land talks to Bryan Robertson at The Sutherland Gallery in Picton Castle, Wales.
' I look upon my work as a metamorphosis of an original object. Nature in the raw is almost impossible to represent today. One has to re-present it in a different way, and in a way which keeps the savour of the original impact felt by the artist.' Producer JOHN BOUNDY

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.
