: BBC Four News and Weather

With George Alagiah.


Unknown: George Alagiah.

: Milan In a Van With Marcel Theroux

The film-maker takes a tour of the epicentre of northern Italian industry, high culture, fashion and football.

: Humpback Whale

The humpback whale is famed for its powerful and beautiful voice, but as this film shows, recent research has revealed its "songs" to be aggressive verbal exchanges that take place during fiercely-fought battles.

: Spenn Whales - Back from the Abyss

Although the sperm whale achieved mythical status in Herman Melville's novel Moby Dick, the mammal is in fact one of the least known of the great whales. This film offers an insight into the life cycle of this elusive animal.

In March 1986 seven young men were gunned down by the South African police, who were insistent that the shooting was legitimate. Lindy Wilson's film follows the inquiry by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission to establish the facts behind the events.

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.
