The National Parks of England and Wales are unique. They are neither 'national' nor 'parks'. Each of the ten is run autonomously. A quarter of a million people live within their boundaries. The bulk of the land remains in private hands, much of it subject to the fashions of farming. Roads. industry, foresters, soldiers and developers jostle to place their mark on a landscape which was chosen so that young and old 'could enjoy the sight and gain spiritual value from unspoilt nature'.
Almost 40 years after the first park appeared on the maps Eric Robson examines the pressures on the parks and talks to those who juggle to preserve their integrity. Producer MARY PRICE BBC Bristol

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.
