: The Ram Sales

A documentary of life in the Yorkshire Dales
Narrator Leslie Sands The climax of the year for the sheep farmers of the Yorkshire Dales is the October sale of shearling rams at Hawes in Wensleydale. There are similar sales at other centres in the North of England where every year, it seems, new record prices are reached for the handsome
Swaledale rams from which many of next spring's lambs will be bred. This year at Hawes the new record price was £13,000, even though the average price was, at E605, a good deal less than that.
In this programme, recorded in and around Hawes, farmers from the Dales talk about their lives amid what they and others claim is the most beautiful scenery in the world.

: Yellow Rain: Genocide or Myth?

In the mid-70s remote tribesmen in South East Asia told stories of a mysterious substance sprayed from the sky or dropped in canisters that caused death and disease in plants and people. They called it ' yellow rain '.
The US State Department suspected it was chemical warfare waged by Communists, but some sceptical scientists believe it is just pollen and that bees and natural toxines are responsible. Who is right?
David Wheeler reports on the evidence in the ' yellow rain ' mystery with people who have spoken to the victims, scientists who have tested samples and those who say it is all a myth. Producer ANNE WINDER

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.
