: Eastward with Attenborough: 4: Green Ceilings of Borneo

Six visits to romantic little-known parts of South-East Asia with David Attenborough

An ocean of green leaves stretches for hundreds of square miles. It's the canopy-the roof of the jungle. In it many new plants, and even trees, are still being discovered. And the animal life too is full of surprises. There are flying squirrels, lizards, lemurs - even a snake that flies! And in a swamp forest David Attenborough discovers a huge colony of flying foxes, the world's largest bat.

by Colin Welland

"Tell me when I'm past it," says Rowland, ageing star of the local Gilbert and Sullivan Society. But, of course, he is and nobody will. Not even when a talent like young Clive Bates is champing at the bit. The Silver Jubilee production looms. Who's going to play Jack Point?

: Coral World: 5: Survival on the Reef

A series of ten programmes

Some creatures carry so much weaponry and armour it's remarkable their predators don't die of starvation. The balance of life on a coral reef is partly the balance of population between predators and prey. Only the very largest fish are safe from being eaten-most reef inhabitants are someone else's dinner. Roland Von Hentig continues his exploration of the reefs of Comoro in the Indian Ocean.

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.
