: THE TIME OF MY LIFE

Duncan Carse
Between 1951 and 1957 he organised and led to the sub-Antarctic a series of small expeditions known as the South Georgia Surveys
It was a time when the whalers wero still whaling, the sealers still working the beaches from small boats under oars, the time when a man could go out with a blank sheet of paper and come back with a map. In between whales. broadcasts, and lectures, Carse did his best to Jive down Dick Barton. In those years it was still possible for the private explorer, given funds and luck, to stick his neck out and do ' the complete iob.'

Archaeologists talk about their work in the field this summer
5: ' Amidst thy desert walks, the lapwing flies '
Most of the villages which spread over the English countryside in the Middle Ages still exist today. But nearly 2.000 of them have died-and their remains give archaeologists the opportunity to find out what individual houses actually looked like before the fifteenth century and how medieval villages expanded or declined.
Archeologists describe their work nn sites at Hound Tor in Devon, Wharram Percy in Yorkshire, Faxton in Northamptonshire, and Upton Wold in Gloucestershire.

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.

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.
