The Tale of the Crayfish
Crayfish, lobster or langouste - whatever the name, it is among the most sought after animals in the sea.
Surprisingly little is known about their lives. Now, for the first time, a camera follows them day and night. A curious riddle is the never-before-seen dawn release of the larvae. Could the year-long voyage of larvae be related somehow to the mysterious underwater marches of adult crayfish?

No Life of My Own
At the age of 30, Terry spends every day restlessly moving about the house, often screaming with frustration. His mother can barely cope. Terry has learning difficulties and is trapped at home because of the long waiting list for day-care places in the county of Avon. There is no law requiring local authorities to provide for all people with mental disabilities after school age. In this film, the Avon Mental Handicap Action Group demonstrate the devastating impact on parents and children who are being denied a life of their own. Camera RICHARD ADAM

: Slow Boat from Surabaya

Five Faces of God Jack Pizzey investigates the five religions that flourish in south-east Asia. In Thailand they say that to be Thai is to be Buddhist. In Muslim
Indonesia the government tries to check the advance of militant Islam by limiting the time the faithful can spend on religion. In the Philippines, animism pervades Christianity and one bizarre sect collects kneecaps to protect itself from bullets.
And Hindus celebrate the January festival with startling pain-defying rituals, piercing their flesh with metal hooks and skewers. Written 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.

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.
