: ANGLERS' CORNER

A film series introduced by Bernard Venables
This week: TENCH
Float-fishing on the Bridgewater Canal in Somerset on a summer's day.
Produced and directed by MAX MUNDEN
There is no more exciting sight to the angler than the cluster of oily bubbles which come breaking at the surface-a clue that the tench has at last been attracted through the mud-bottomed, weed jungle to where your baitis resting Tentative mouthings round your hook follow. Then the atmosphere of the lazy late summer's day alters from the tense to the intense. As the angler strikes, the behaviour of the lethargic tench is transformed to a bold and cunning strategy. The fish plunges deep, using the weeds to try to lose the hook or break the line; success for the fishermen is never sure until the glistening tench is safely landed.

: Out of the Unknown: Target Generation

by Clifford Simak
dramatised by Clive Exton
with David Buck as Jon Hoff, Ronald Lacey as Joe Manx and Owen Berry as Joshua
A community of the future -- puritan, superstitious, inward-looking -- confined within The Ship. They have been there for generations, and have long forgotten whatever purpose put them there. They worship meaningless symbols with elaborate ritual. They know that one day they will feel a tremor in the ship, but only one young man has inherited the secret of what must be done when the tremor comes.

: EUROPA

Weltspiegel, Continents sans Visa A Toda Plana , Estafeta, Realta
These are just some of the television programmes in both West and East Europe which regularly contribute- to Europa. The programme has been called a European window on the world. Each week it looks at the stories and issues that have informed, entertained, and sometimes angered viewers across a continent.
It examines their attitudes and prejudices and, in so doing, perhaps recognises some of our own.
Introduced this week by Jack Pizzey

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.

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.
