: The Other World of Jacques Cousteau

I How can. we convince people that instead of voting for their traditional candidates, they should vote for nature - not a political party.'
Earlier this year, Captain Cousteau returned from his search for Atlantis to campaign in the French national elections in support of Ecologie 78 - a political association formed to fight the election specifically on environmental issues. Cousteau's personal theme was based on his fervent opposition to the expansion of nuclear power in France.
Tonight Julian Pettifer , together with representatives of environmental pressure groups, trades unions and members of the public on this side of the Channel, discusses with CAPTAIN COUSTEAU ways in which public opinion can best be mobilised.

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.
