A group of five talks by W. G. Hoskins
1—Ordeal by Planning
Wlhite the geologist may explain the fundamental structure of the landscape, the bones that give shape to the scene, it is the historian's task to show how man has clothed the geological skeleton during the comparatively recent past. In these talks Dr. Hoskins Reader in Economic History in the University of Oxford, is oonoemed with the various ways by which man-from Saxon to Victorian times — has altered the shape of the natural landscape. In this talk Dr. Hoskins reconsiders the view that the parliamentary enclosure movement changed England, almost overnight, into a country of hedges and singing birds, and he examines the effects of enclosure on the English landscape.

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

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.
