Twin Towns with 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.

: Wildlife on One

Birds of the Volcanoes
Narrated by DAVID ATTENBOROUGH
The West Pacific volcanic islands of New Guinea and New Britain are the settings for some of the world's most spectacular tropical wildlife.
Bower birds lure females by painting and decorating their bachelor pads. Big-footed megapodes dig deep in volcanic incubators. Exotic birds of paradise show off fantastic plumes - adornments that are prized by hill people for ceremonies staged at the cost of thousands of birds' lives.

: Women in Captivity

A Story of survival - Sumatra 1942-5
In the remote jungle prison camps of the East Indies, hundreds of British and Australian women, segregated from the men, fought to stay alive. Their story has been largely forgotten.
In this film some of the survivors from one particular camp tell how they made a life for themselves in the face of starvation and disease.
And two of the women, who returned to Sumatra for the first time since the war, recall the courage, ingenuity and invention needed to live through the years of captivity.

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.
