2/7. Industrialisation vs Conservation. Iceland is selling itself as the new powerhouse to the world. Its government wants to profit from the country's cheap, clean and renewable energy. But that means flooding a pristine wilderness to create a massive dam that will feed energy to a new smelter. To some this is a welcome new step in the country's development. To others it's akin to "an environmental apocalypse". Richard Hollingham travels to Iceland to hear both sides of the argument. Producer Anca Toader Repeated on Monday at 8.30pm

4/6. Dizziness. One in three people has experienced unexplained dizziness by the age of 65. A mild bang to the head or a viral infection can disrupt the workings of the inner ear and cause long-term symptoms. Other diseases of balance can be very severe: Meniere's disease can cause vertigo, tinnitus, vomiting and, ultimately, hearing loss. Attacks vary in severity and although there is no cure, it can be helped. Barbara Myers is joined by consultant in audio-vestibular medicine Dr Rosalyn Davies to answer listeners' questions on dizziness.

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.
