Write about Farming
David Addis talks to farmers who are also authors. Why do they turn to writing, do farmers make good writers, and can it ever be as profitable as farming? He talks to farmers who have just published their first books, and also to those who make their living by writing. Producer DAVID ADDIS
Presented by Brian Redhead and Chris Lowe in London and Peter Hobday at the SDP Conference in Portsmouth

by JEAN-PIERRE DE ROHAN Stories of extinct birds
1: As Dead as a Dod-Arsen Little did the Dutch sailor, bitten by a strange bird on the island of Mauritius in 1598, realise he was witness to the most celebrated extinction story.
Narrator Barry Paine Producer MILES BARTON BBC Bristol. Stereo (R)
In this series of four family portraits, Michael O'Donnell explores how shifting social and moral attitudes in Britain have affected family life.
Are we more self-seeking, less compassionate than we were, with standards slipping and family ties loosening, to the point of disinterest - even disloyalty? Or are we now turning our backs on 'permissiveness', in order to embrace some vague notion of the Victorian ethic? 1: The Gray sons
In this first programme, good-natured pragmatism, Yorkshire humour and the watchful eye of a remarkable grandmother carry the Graysons through an eventful and sometimes stormy family saga.
Producer SHARON BANOFF

It was at this time in the year

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.
