: Wild World

Animals in close-up, in action, and in our lives with Tony Soper
Flamingos: In Africa Lesser Flamingos form a pink fringe around the lakes, and when thousands flock together it is a wonderful sight.
Orchids: Compare wild British orchids with some of the cultivated kinds and see one of our rare ones hand-pollinated.
Sea Swallows: These graceful sea birds nest around our coasts in summer. Some live in noisy bird cities, others keep more to themselves. In winter they journey thousands of miles to warmer places.

: Across the Great Divide: Take a Pryde in the Arctic

"I don't think I could even begin to tell you why I like the Arctic, I just know I do - love it, it's more than a liking, it's almost a compulsion." (Duncan Pryde)

Cliff Michelmore reports on Duncan Pryde, a 33-year-old Scot who's become a legend in the Canadian Arctic. Why he went there, why he stays. What it's like to live at 140 below zero, to be trapped in a blizzard thousands of miles from anyone, to live as an Eskimo sharing another man's wife.

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, and programmes to purchase from BBC Store and other providers.

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.
