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.

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

Introduced by Sue MacGregor Putting on the Action: last night Penelope Keith opened in London's West End, taking on not only her expected leading role, but also the mantle of co-producer. Helen Montague is another of this rare breed of women producers with 42nd

Malcolm Jones traces the career of the 19th-century Lancashireborn artist Thomas Cole , the father of American landscape painting, whose vast, allegorical canvases were despised by the critics and loved by the public. with Alan Rothwell as Thomas Cole

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.
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.
