A lighthearted exploration of numbers and science.

A solar plane that could reach new heights and how you could ride on a sun-beam for free. So if you don't want to be in the dark, switch on to see the light-from infra-red to ultraviolet. Meanwhile -
Think of a Number - it's all relative! If 2 is company and 3 is a crowd, what are 4 and 5?* Written by JOHNNY BALL Designer JOHN BONE

: 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. 9: The Rise of the Mammals
The mammals have proved to be one of the most adaptable products of evolution. Their ancestry can be traced back nearly 200 million years to the beginning of the dinosaur era when the first furry warm-blooded creatures scurried around the forest floor at night while the mighty reptiles slept.
As time went by, female mammals evolved ways of keeping their babies warm and nourished. Early ones may have laid eggs like the platypus does today. Later forms evolved pouches, placentas ana milk-producing organs and so provided for their young more comprehensively than any other kind of creature.

: The Black and the Gold

Millions of years ago, generations of living creatures died and were buried, then crushed among the rocks. Now their remains are brought up from deep under the sea and fire our machines.
The Brent Delta is but one of 40 platforms between the Shetlands and Norway which reap this black liquid harvest. It is a strange and eerie world: the night sky glows bright orange; men work on deck sweltering in tropical warmth, but surrounded by a sub-Arctic sea; 300 miles from any city, commuters shuttle daily to and from their work on flying buses.
Yet every activity of every one of the thousands of men confined to this unreal and dreamlike world is directed to one end alone: to get oil and gas out and so make money. Their success or failure affects not only their company's profits, but all our pockets too. Narrator IAIN CUTHBERTSON

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.
