: Wildlife on One

Goldfish
Narrated by David Attenborough
One day several thousand years ago, a man took a dull-coloured carp with a few red scales from a slow-running stream in China - and turned it by careful breeding into gold. Now every week they are bred in millions for fun-fairs and pet shops all around the world. In Britain they are cherished, but often badly looked after, pets. In contrast most goldfish from one US fish farm are fed to pet piranhas!

: Lyrics and Music by Irving Berlin

A 90th birthday celebration programme written by BENNY GREEN and KENNETH CORDEN
Irving Berlin is 90 today. Nobody really knows how many songs the master of American popular music has actually written, but nearly 1,000 have been published.
In this birthday tribute narrator Benny Green examines not only why the self-taught Russian-born Jewish immigrant got to the peak of the song-writing profession, but how he managed to stay there for over half a century.

Jimmy Adams , the Californian gypsy, spends a few thousand dollars on his daughter's wedding. Malim Manzi , a Tanzanian Muslim, spent two-thirds of his annual cash income on his boy's circumcision. Everywhere in the world, people find it essential to mark the important stages in life and the surprising discovery is that all such ceremonies have similar patterns.

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.
