: The World About Us Where Two Worlds Meet

Turkey is a natural land bridge linking the East with the West.
Each year, across Western Turkey, come millions of birds on migration between Asia, Africa, and Europe. They cross high mountains and arid plains to reach Turkey's great lakes and reed-beds, vital to the migrants' survival.
Other animals have adopted man-made habitats, living amongst the crumbling palaces and temples of southern Turkey that stand as reminders of the great empires that once dominated this part of the world.

The first half of a recent Beethoven Prom was entirely devoted to his playing of the Diabelli Variations for solo piano.

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 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 find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

This is a historical record of both 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
