: Look: Over the Dyke

with Peter Scott.
The dams and dykes of Holland, which hold back the water from the newly reclaimed land of what used to be the Zuyder Zee, provide no obstacle to a subsequent invasion by natural life. For a while, some species of animals abound in great numbers, among them the mole and the kestrel.

: The Young Adults

A documentary film on the sexual behaviour of teenagers.
There has been a stream of guess-work, opinion, outrage, and argument about adolescent sexual activity. At last some basic factual information is supplied by the publication of the results of a long and scholarly research project.
This programme shows the national patterns of teenage sex revealed by the Report, using teenagers themselves to present statistical information and to discuss their own opinions and experiences.
With Michael Schofield, director of the research and author of the book.

"The Sexual Behaviour of Young People" by Michael Schofield will be published by Longmans on July 26

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.
