Water, Water Everywhere water - ' free and for everyone '. That's an attitude which has taken a severe hammering lately. Water rates have doubled in some areas in the past year and the new separate bills have made the public aware, possibly for the hrst time, that water costs money - our money, and on a national scale, lots of it. Kielder Reservoir, for example, the largest scheme in Europe. will add at least £130-million to Northumbrian water bill; the proposed Roadford Reservoir in Devon, a mere £50-million. Both will drown a fast-declining asset In Britain, agricultural land. In this, the first of a weekly series of investigative documentaries, Roger Cook asks, do we really need all this water, and are the authorities accountable to us and to their critics who claim that economy and good management could dispense with the need for

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.
