: Jackanory

with Freddie Jones
This week's Jackanory stories are all about wizards, witches and sorcerers. They are of every kind; a wicked Russian witch with sea serpents at her command, a kind Welsh witch who can make the corn grow and the hens lay eggs, and a rather junior sorcerer who sends an old man on the strangest journey of his life.

: Star Trek: This Side of Paradise

Given the grim task of seeking survivors on Omicron Ceti III, which has become exposed to deadly rays, Captain Kirk is astounded to find everyone wonderfully well.
Furthermore, the colonists are extraordinarily content with their condition and he becomes baffled and then, fortunately as it trans-spires, enraged at the insidious effect their behaviour has on his crew, even the unimpressionable Spock succumbing to the seduction.

: A Blank on the Map

A journey with David Attenborough
A thousand square miles of unexplored country in the centre or New Guinea; from the air it looked little different from the rest of the jungle-covered mountains that fill most of the island s interior. But then photographs for an aerial survey unexpectedly showed a few tiny clearings. It could be that, hidden in the forest, there lived people still uncontacted by the outside world. So a patrol officer, with 100 carriers, set out to walk straight across the blank patch, to plot its rivers, measure its mountains and see just what did live in its forests.

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.
