: The Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau: The Fish That Swallowed Jonah

The famous underwater explorer takes his research vessel Calypso on another voyage of adventure and scientific discovery.
Mystery surrounds the epic adventures of Jonah. Legend has it that a whale swallowed him but perhaps a giant grouper did the job? Groupers have powerful jaws and strong throat muscles; they can suck in and swallow prey almost as large as themselves.
Cousteau and his crew find groupers lurking in underwater caves off Belize. There they migrate for an annual spawning spree which for many becomes a dance of death at the end of a fishing line.

: The Mystery of Loch Ness

The BBC1 Documentary
One night a few, years ago sonar equipment registered two large moving objects in the peaty waters of Loch Ness. Simultaneously an underwater camera photographed two shapes which, when computer-enhanced, looked like animal fins. Last year two more pictures were published. One was described by an unkind critic as a set of bag-pipes in a snowstorm. The book-makers' odds changed dramatically in favour of the existence of the Loch Ness Monster.
In tonight's documentary Hugh Burnett looks at some of the filmed evidence, eye-witness accounts and opinions which suggest that Loch Ness is either the world's most amazing natural aquarium or just another Scottish loch haunted by the legend of the water horse of folk lore.

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.
