: Animal Scene: 1: Champion Cats

Michael Rodd presents a new series of programmes in which he continues to explore the animal world in Britain.
Even pet moggies have a chance to become champions at the annual National Cat Club Championship Show - the biggest in the world - held at Olympia in London. But a bewildering range of pedigree cats perhaps steal the thunder as Michael finds out with the expert guidance of Nick Henderson, veterinary surgeon and author of numerous cat books. A look behind the scenes at a cattery with Rosemary Gowdy, one of Britain's leading chinchilla cat breeders, shows us what is involved in breeding champions and preparing them for shows.

: The Dracula Business: Tuesday's Documentary

The world-wide obsession with the Dracula myth seems to be on the increase. The book which started it all, Dracula, was published in 1897 and has never been out of print. The stage play is always in production. More than 200 films have been made on the subject. Dracula has become a household name which can sell anything from ice lollies to package tours to Romania.
In tonight's film Dan Farson investigates the weird obsession of his great-uncle Bram Stoker, the author of Dracula, and discovers that behind the Dracula Business is something more than a fascination with horror- something that goes deeper in today's society than was ever dreamt of by its original creator.

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.
