On Thin Ice: 5/5


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.
TV presenter Ben Fogle, Olympian James Cracknell and Dr Ed Coats are recovering at the halfway checkpoint after arriving in second place, just behind race rivals the Norwegians. After resting for 24 hours, the all clear is given. They start out well, racing hard in the face of temperatures that are dropping to -40°C and below, but within days both Ben and James succumb to frostbite. And then, on a particularly hard and cold day, they break down. James is almost at the point of no return and the team are forced to review their situation. They bravely head off again, only to find themselves in a crevasse field. With each step they risk falling through the thin snow bridges that conceal the hidden danger beneath. Their only escape route is to reach the South Pole as fast as possible.

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.
