: The Discoverers

The last of six programmes with David Attenborough The Rare and the Curious
In the 19th century, when zoos were first opened to the public, a search began across the world to be the first to find all the most rare and curious animals. Each discovery was a source of national pride. But the people who actually made the discoveries were only part-time zoologists; some were British colonial officers and one was a French missionary priest.
Today DAVID ATTENBOROUGH talks about three of them - Brian Hodg son, Harry Johnston and Father Armand David.

: Blue Peter Special Assignment

Twin Towns
This week:
Peter Purves in Warsaw and Lesley Judd in Coventry
Coventry was flattened during the Second World War and Warsaw was systematically destroyed. The Twin Town movement was virtually born in the smoking ruins of Coventry Cathedral. PETER discovers how Warsaw rose from the ashes, and learns that Chopin, who was a boy in Warsaw 150 years ago, composed the music that is still the voice of Polish freedom.
LESLEY finds out what it really means to be sent to Coventry, and understands why it was so important that a new Coventry Cathedral should be built alongside the ruins of the old.

: Everyman: Rastaman

This week: Rastaman
Vanya Kewley reports from Jamaica on the marijuana-smoking Rastafarians who believe that the late Haile Selassie of Ethiopia is God. Everyman explores the controversial beliefs and life-style of these ferocious-looking 'dread-locks' in the Dungle (dung heap) of downtown Kingston, films their 'ganja' (marijuana) ceremonies, and looks at how their vision, music and painting are influencing Jamaica, from the music of Bob Marley to the new ballets of the Jamaica National Dance Theatre. As the Prime Minister, Michael Manley, says in the programme:
'By making Haile Selassie the Christ figure, the Rastafarian reconnects Africa and black with the Christian message... Rastafarians have this tremendous inner peace and sense of certainty about their identity which is not true about most other Jamaicans.'

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.
