: Think of a Number

with Johnny Ball
A light-hearted exploration of numbers and science.

The cold facts about squeezing a lot into a little. See how a little hot air can make a lot go a long way. And before the end of the programme some of the audience will-be floating on air. So, sit down and find out how, with a bit of inflation, you could be on the move.
Meanwhile - Think of a Number. Squeeze six marbles into a matchbox and divide them between three boys and three girls so that each person receives a marble, but one marble remains in the box.*

A natural history in 13 parts by David Attenborough The story of life
6: Invasion of the Land
Evolution reached one of its most crucial stages, some 350 million years ago, when fishes crawled from water on to the land and became amphibians.
Today newts, salamanders, frogs and toads still survive in great variety; some frogs can fly, others hatch their tadpoles in their backs, and, most strange of all, there's even a species in which the male gives birth from its mouth!

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.
