: Private Lives

Narrated by Jeffery Boswall
The Private Life of the Harp Seal
It's an attractive and fascinating creature of the North Atlantic Ocean. It never comes to land but rears its baby on a cradle of ice off Russia, Greenland or Canada. It can dive down 600ft and hold its breath for over ten minutes by taking down specially concentrated supplies of oxygen in its blood.
Magnificently filmed in the green ethereal depths of the sea below the ice, as well as on the surface, this film penetrates the home life of the harp seal in all its aspects: birth and death; feeding and fighting; moulting and migrating.
A CBC TV production
Producer ROMAN BITTMAN
Presented by JEFFERY BOSWALL (Bristol)
Private Lives, based on previous programmes, £ 1.75 at bookshops

: Robbie

The quality of life -how do you rate it? Better or worse than it was for earlier generations? Our verdict depends on too many personal variables and the biggest, of course, is age. If you're young you've got nothing to compare the present with. ' I didn't set out to strike a balance. I don't doubt - who could? - that in material things the quality of life of the huge majority has been raised to levels nobody dreamed of half a century ago. But higher material standards don't necessarily mean happier people. If they did, how do you explain today's society.' ROBBIE is Fyfe Robertson

: The Sky at Night

The Galilean Satellites
Jupiter's four largest moons - the Galilean satellites - are among the most interesting members of the Solar System. They were discovered by Galileo in 1610 - hence their nickname - and they have been studied by the Pioneer probes; one of them, lo, affects Jupiter's radio emission.
Patrick Moore talks about these planet-sized satellites with Dr Garry Hunt , who is involved in all the space missions and gives the latest news about the Viking probe to Mars.

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.
