: THE TIME OF MY LIFE

Peter Scott
For most people, the ' time of their lives ' is sometime in the past: for Peter Scott-it is now. ' I am, without question.' he says, ' the luckiest, and I believe the happiest man I know.'
As well as being the first Vice-President and Chairman of the World Wildlife Fund and Director of the Severn Wildfowl Trust, Peter Scott is a distinguished yachtsman and Klider pilot, a gifted painter and an inveterate explorer. ' That's why,' he says, ' I have every intention of being the first octogenarian on the moon.'

: IN OUR TIME

The Warsaw Rising, 1944
On August 1, twenty-five years ago, Russian tanks had pushed the Germans across the river Vistula, which skirts Warsaw to the East. The Polish Underground Army decided that this was their last chance to recapture their own capital. But in the two months and three days that followed, a city the size of Glasgow was razed to the ground and some 250,000 people died.
JOHN TUSA tells this moving and dramatic story with the help of fighters who survived and the words of Churchill, Stalin, and Roosevelt.

Her recently republished story is a textbook example of the courage and endurance of the middle-class Victorian woman moving with determination and disapproval through a disastrous situation. with Mary Wimbush as Florentia Sale

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.
