With the latest news and information on our wildlife. Introduced by Tony Soper
With SU INGLE
It's a British mammal, the size of a large cat, beautiful, graceful, an agile climber and a fast runner. It used to be widespread in Britain but now is restricted mainly to the highlands. You've almost certainly never seen one in the wild!
It's a pine marten, and this week Wildtrack looks at an ambitious project to bring the pine marten back to the newly-forested areas of southern Scotland.

: The Risk Business

On the Crest of a Dream
According to one researcher ' You can invent three new devices for getting energy out of the sea before breakfast, and two more after lunch if you're awake enough'. But will they work? Britain, at the moment, leads the world with more than ten designs for harnessing wave power. Kieran Pren diville and Judith Hann talk to researchers up and down the country who believe their ideas stand a real chance of success. But the Department of Energy and the Central Electricity Generating Board seem dedicated to a nuclear future; so is alternative energy just a dream or could we one day be switching on electricity that can never run out? In the end it all comes down to money: to how much it will cost. We do not know whether wave energy will ever appear to be as cheap as nuclear energy, but it could simply be that we are doing our sums the wrong way.

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.
