: Newsround Extra: A New Law for Animals?

Every year 30 million wild animals are killed for the value of their skins. And millions more are captured for the pet trade, for zoos and safari parks. Trade in animals is one of the most important reasons for species dying out. John Craven investigates how 57 countries have drawn up a convention to protect rare animals, but only a few have taken any action. And Britain isn't one of those. Why?

: Private Lives: The Private Life of the Fox

Narrated by Jeffery Boswall

There is the fox spoken about in the country pubs and at hunt balls: an elegant villain of the countryside. Then there is the real fox: a native, wild animal beautifully adapted to its way of life, whose instinct and intelligence may make it an occasional competitor of ours but whose attributes are those of a fine beast of prey.
In this film Eric Ashby, who has been filming wild foxes for 40 years, brings his career as a wild-life film-maker to a climax. Four years' work went into this one 25-minute film.

: Robbie

In this first programme of a new weekly series, Fyfe Robertson looks over his shoulder at his life with the motorcar and recalls some nostalgic memories of his chequered life on four wheels.
' Have you ever wondered what life would be like without all the cars that line our suburban streets? I know, because I grew up through the innocent infancy of the car, and we've been together, car and I, for more than half a century.'

After Splashdown, The Assessment Was that Soviet/ American handshake in space one week ago really a historic moment, or just a 240 million dollar publicity stunt? Less than an hour after the splashdown of Apollo, James Burke and Michael Charlton analyse the key events of the mission and the way in which it was presented to the Soviet and American people.

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.
