Scorpion
Narrated by DAVID ATTENBOROUGH
The scorpion - a creature of myth and legend. Its poisonous sting has made it a famous astrological symbol of secrecy and death.
Judge the legend for yourself as unique film from North Africa and the Caribbean shows the private world of the scorpion, its love dances and the wav it tackles its prey. Like scorpions, the film has a sting in its tail - they're closer to home than you think!

: Pig Earth

Omnibus presents John Berger's moving and beautiful stories about peasant life.
Photographs by Jean Mohr.
For the past five years John Berger, one of our most acclaimed and original writers, has been living and working among peasants in the French Alps. His new book. Pig Earth, grew out of this experience. For years, too, the distinguished Swiss photographer Jean Mohr has been photographing peasants all over the world.
This is Berger's first television appearance since his award-winning series Ways of Seeing. In part one, he tells his own stories about his neighbours, the village peasants. In part two, he talks with Teodor Shanin, a world authority on peasant societies, about their political and historical significance in the modern world.

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.
