: Animal Scene

2: The Wild and the Rare
Why is it so important to conserve endangered species of wild and domestic breeds? Michael Rodd finds out as he explores the animal world around Britain. Otters are, perhaps, Philip Wayre 's favourite animals, but at Norfolk Wildlife Park he claims to have the largest specialist collection of European mammals and birds in the country - from Alpine ibex to Eagle owls - and a record of outstanding breeding successes that has never been beaten.
Joe Henson , at Cotswold Farm Park, a member of the recently formed Rare Breeds Survival Trust, is concerned with preserving historic breeds of livestock - the Soay, Jacob, and Manx Loghtan sheep; the tremendous Longhorn and tiny Dexter cattle; and pigs like the Gloucester Old Spot which used to make your bacon taste of cider.

: The Rise and Fall of DDT

Tuesday's Documentary
This is the adventure story - with just a whiff of espionage - of a wonder chemical which began life helping the Allies win the second world war. Since then it has freed half a planet from the scourge of malaria, and saved ten million lives.
But DDT is also attacked as the darkest threat of the Silent Spring. It is accused of dealing indiscriminate death to fish and birds and of being a cause of cancer in man. As a spearhead issue of the environmental revolution it has been judged in the courtrooms of America - and banned.
Is it safe to use DDT anywhere in the world? And just how valid is the evidence brought against it?

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.
