The Politics of Food
Many of the West's commodities come from the Third World, yet it's the people there who produce them who are the first to go hungry - not consumers in the industrialised world. Has the concentration on cash crops widened the gap between rich and poor? Does food aid foster dependence on imports and alter local tastes?
Is the global supermarket now dominated by multinational food companies?
Answering your questions for this One World Week phone-in are Idriss Jazairy , President of the International Fund for Agricultural Development, and Dr Susan George , author of How the Other Half Dies.
Sue MacGregor is in the Chair. Produced by the Woman's Hour unit Lines open from 8.0 0 am

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.
