Incidental music by Ray Martin who conducts his Players
Marmaduke was probably the most ambitious little fellow in Mouseland. When the city was in danger from raiding cats, he set out to save the situation by bringing back the moon from the top of the high mountain. Whether he succeeded or not you can decide for yourselves-but the King did make him Sir Marmaduke.

: SCIENCE SURVEY

* The Human Frame' by J. Z. Young, F.R.s.
Professor of Anatomy in the University of London
We all have our own ways of standing, with the weight either mainly on one leg or on the other, or sometimes squarely on both. But even at our quietest we still make slight swaying movements-a sign of the continuous activity of a living person. In this talk Professor Young makes some interesting comparisons between the body and mechanical structures, and shows how particular types of posture reflect the owner's character and way of life.

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

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
