A Wonderful Bird is the Pelican Narrated by DAVID ATTENBOROUGH
If ever a bird looked like one of nature's practical jokes, it must be the pelican, with its huge pouch and clumsy, waddling gait. But once off the ground the pelican shows itself in its true role - at the nest, a gentle bird with an endearing family life - in the air, the ultimate flying, fishing machine ... bird to wonder at!

: Play for Today: That Crazy Woman

by DAVID HOPKINS
Twenty years ago, at the age of 56, this extraordinary woman became a national hero by walking from John O'Groats to Land's End. One of the last great English eccentrics (even though she was Russian) in the last days of English innocence; a time when The Beatles were but pubescent bugs, Eamonn Andrews still worked for the BBC, and What's My Line was a high-spot of the week.

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.
