For a week last May, television's ' eye in the night' focused on wild badgers in the heart of the Gloucestershire countryside.
A second opportunity to see the events of those five late nights, when remotely controlled infrared sensitive cameras gave viewers a unique opportunity to watch the intimate behaviour of badgers as they emerged from their underground home.

from Boston, Lincolnshire.
Boston Stump is one of the great landmarks of Eastern England. It's also the tower of St Botolph's Parish Church, where this week choirs and congregations of the town meet GEOFFREY WHEELER , who has been talking to some of them about their life, their faith and the hymns they like to sing.
All my hope on God is founded (Michael); Lord, enthroned in heavenly splendour (St Helen); The old ragged cross; Blest are the pure in heart (Franconia); We are one in the spirit; Jesu, the very thought of thee (St Botolph); Mine eyes have seen the glory (John Brown ); In Christ there is no East or West (St Bernard); The royal banners forward go (Gonfalon Royal)

: Everyman: Balinese Vision

Thirteen years ago Dr Lawrence Blair, writer and student of comparative religions, made his first trip - to the island of Bali; 'I quickly discovered that here was a group of people who knew a great deal more about the inner nature of man, the world we refer to as spirit, than we do in the West.' Dr. Blair has since made his home in Bali.
This film is his personal account of the island that has been called paradise on earth; and of what he believes the Balinese can teach us about how to live.

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.
