We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
Your Pictures
Peter Thompson and Jennifer examine some of the pictures you have sent in, and show how patterns can be repeated to make practical designs.

Jubilee for Birds
The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds holds an exhibition this week in the Central Hall, Westminster, to celebrate fifty years of work.
James Fisher and Philip Brown bring to the studio many things from the exhibition, including self-recording nest boxes, light-house perches, models of bird sanctuaries, and films. 'Fish-Hawk' helps to conduct a quiz.

Muffin the Mule
Annette Mills and Ann Hogarth demonstrate Muffin's interest in birds, past, present, and to come.

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.
