Survivor
Alone in the wilderness after an air crash - could you survive? In the first of two Programmes Peter Duncan joins expert Lofty Wiseman , who says that with proper training and the will to continue, any fit person can survive. But solitude and lack of proper food make seven days seem like eternity to Peter as he learns that bull rushes are as nourishing as asparagus, and all you need to cross water safely is a plastic sack.

The video eye on nature presented by Michael Jordan and Nick Davies
Somewhere in the West Country the wild rabbits should be coming out of their warrens to feed in the evening light and, it is hoped, to be the stars of one of this week's live outside broadcasts. And in the centre of town, cameras are looking into the nest of a back-garden bird - maybe a blue tit, maybe a robin, or magpie.... And how a change in the law may affect Britain's reptiles - from rare adders and slow worms to common lizards and grass snakes. Producers

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.
