: Life on Earth

A natural history in 13 parts by David Attenborough
The story of life from the first primitive cells to the plants and animals that now live around us. 3: The First Forests
For about 3,000 million years life evolved only in the waters of our planet. Then, over 400 million years ago, tiny plants began to invade the land, followed by the first animals-the ancestors of scorpions, millipedes and insects. This programme shows how the plants and animals coped with the problems of life on land, and how their subsequent pattern of co-evolution eventually led to the development of flowers.
... the series will Inevitably be numbered among the indispensable documents of our age. (DAILY MAIL) Photography MAURICE FisnER Music EDWARD WILLIAMS

: Hollywood's Wild Angel

Omnibus takes a look into the breathless world of the exploitation movie.
Roger Corman was once the king of the horror film - his best-known were The Pit and the Pendulum, Fall of the House of Usher, Masque of the Red Death.
Now he's boss of his own' Hollywood studio, New World Pictures. He finds young directors, sometimes fresh out of film school, pays them a pittance and gives them ten days to shoot low-budget movies with titles like Night Call Nurses, Caged Heat and A Bucket of Blood ...
Yet youthful talent flocks to him: his discoveries include JACK NICHOLSON , FRANCIS FORD COPPOLA and MARTIN SCORSESE. And, as well as pushing money-spinners like Death Race 2000, his company distributes the work of Fellini, Antonioni, Bergman and Truffaut. This film presents a fast-moving, often hilarious portrait of this Svengali of the movie 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.
