: 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA

by JULES VERNE freely adapted as a serial in eight parts by Lance Sieveking
Part 4
It is autumn 1866. The gigantic, luminous sea monster that has been attacking ships turns out not to be a live creature, but is a submarine vessel, the only one of its kind in the world.
Professor Aronnax, his servant
Elbow, and Ned Land the harpooner were nearly drowned when their frigate was rammed, but they have been rescued by strange sailors whose language they do not recognise, and locked up inside the submarine.
When they ask the captain what his name is he replies that they may call him Nemo'-the Latin word for 'no one.' They are given strange foods, and even stranger clothes. Captain Nemo says that he will never allow them to return to the world of men. But he will show them sights such as no man has ever dreamed of: sights the imagination boggles at!

: WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

Appeal on behalf of the Muscular Dystrophy Group by Christopher Chataway , M.P.
Contributions (preferably by crossed postal order or cheque) will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
A drive is being made to intensify research into the complaint known as muscular dystrophy, a wasting of the muscles that may prove fatal. Research has already made easier diagnosis possible, but there is still no certain cure. Funds are therefore urgently required for research that can save life, especially as muscular dystrophy is a disease that is liable to attack young people.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
