: So You Think You're Kind to Animals?

We like to think of ourselves as a nation of animal lovers. Are we merely a nation of animal keepers?
It's a sad fact that more animals suffer from misplaced kindness than deliberate cruelty. Are you looking after your pet properly? Take this test and find out.
Cliff Michelmore asks the questions and gives you the answers. You can compare your score with a team of well-known animal lovers:
Katie Boyle
Celia Hammond Adam Faith
Clement Freud who will be competing in the studio against a team of young animal lovers.
A panel of experts:
Stanley Dangerfield , animal writer Major R. F. Seager , Sec. RSPCA John Hodgman , mrcvs will point out where most of us go wrong in our treatment of animals.

: Sybil Thorndike Remembers

Dame Sybil Thorndike talks to FRANK HAUSER about her Victorian childhood, her early days in the theatre and her marriage with Lewis Casson.
When I was five years old I remember the Jubilee of Queen Victoria.
The children knew that the theatre came first, we went to work-other people did jobs.
There is a phoney naturalism which is just as ham as big phoneyness - and twice as boring.
Film editor COLIN HILL Producer HAL BURTON

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.
