Desperately Seeking Nessie
At the age of 28, Steve Feltham was dissatisfied with his life and work installing burglar alarms in Dorset. When a friend asked him what he would really like to do, he replied, "Find the Loch Ness monster." He sold his home and business to finance an indefinite vigil on the shores of Loch Ness, bought a caravan, and set off for Scotland to be a full-time monster hunter.
When he arrived on the banks of the loch, Steve realised he had a few tests to pass if he was to be accepted as a resident hunter. Not the least of these was surviving a hard Highland winter, which helped to gain him the respect of the locals. His dream of escaping the rat race is frequently shattered by the arrival of TV crews, April
Fool jokers, and David Bellamy. Steve's personal diary is a funny, beautiful and inspiring record of his first year at Loch Ness. Lurking beneath the surface of its dark waters is Nessie and, for Steve, it's only a matter of time.

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.
