A view of man and his expanding society seen in the archaeological landscape of the South. 1: Order out of Chaos
Between 7,000 and 4,000 years ago, what had been a fragmented society of hunters began to show signs of a definite social order and stability. Huge monuments from that age still survive as in Stonehenge and Avebury. But others, equally impressive in their day, have disappeared.

to The Argentine
A new six-part series of zoological exploration
Introduced by Jeffery Boswall
5: Los Glaciares National Park
Among the Patagonian Andes, this park offers the most spectacular scenery in all Argentina. An ice-cap feeds glaciers of extraordinary beauty, one of which is advancing, mowing down a forest and damming millions of gallons of water to form a vast natural reservoir. A wealth of wildfowl, including swans with black necks, grace the waters at the edge of the virgin forests of southern beach - home to the carpintero patagonico, the largest of the Latin American woodpeckers. On the scrubby plains the expedition searches for the guanaco, a wild, much-persecuted member of the camel family.

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.
