: Private Lives

Narrated by Jeffery Boswall
The Prirate Life of the Wild Duck We shoot them, we count them, we study them, we breed them, we conserve them and we watch them. It is the common and often very tame duck of our city parks but it is also the truly wild duck of the quieter and more remote parts of our country. It is the Mallard.
The mallard drake has a flashy but beautiful plumage which he uses to great advantage in his spring displays. The duck is more soberly dressed for the important task of rearing her family of precious ducklings until they are ready to join the autumn flocks. In this film the full year's cycle in the life of the wild duck is revealed in all its intricate detail.
Produced in association with TIME LH-E FILMS

: Robbie

In his lifetime, pretty well everything except humam nature has changed, but the biggest changes have come in the amount of leisure we have and what we do with it.
' When I was growing up before the First World War, and for long after that, wishing was as near as most of us could ever hope to get to the different worlds of far exotic places. They were just names on a map. Today the world is everyman's holiday oyster, real barriers of leisure and money and distance have disappeared.' ROBBIE is Fyfe Robertson

by LEO TOLSTOY dramatised in nine parts by JACK PULMAN Part 8
The Russians who were wounded at Borodino arrived back in Moscow and the city was evacuated, including the Rostov family who eventually fled to escape from the French. But instead of taking their furniture and belongings on the carts they were persuaded by Natasha to take wounded soldiers and, unknown to her, one of the soldiers was Andrei.
Pierre heard that Helene intended to divorce him and that Anatole was dead. He decided to stay in Moscow in order to assassinate Napoleon, but as Moscow began to burn, he was arrested by the French as an incendiary.

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.
