: Think of a Number

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

Seeing how the problem of Cleopatra's Needle was sewn up, how to pull your weight and someone else's besides. See a tailor-made jacket that weighs 25,000 tons, which turns out to be a bit of a drag, not to say boring.
So. mechanically speaking, it could be to your advantage to watch; even a moving experience. Meanwhile - Think of a Number - get a move on with this! Make eight 8s and a few plusses move about to make a 1 and three zeros.*

: Life on Earth

A natural history in 13 parts by David Attenborough
11: The Hunters and Hunted
Succulent leaves, shoots and roots are an abundant form of food and all over the world many mammals have adopted a life of browsing, grazing and gnawing. While these vegetarians grow fat on plant food, they in turn are hunted by a variety of meat eaters.
This eternal duel between the hunters and the hunted is one of the driving forces of evolution, and nowhere is it seen better than on the plains of East Africa.

: The Flying Machines of Ken Wallis

At many of the air shows up and down the country this summer, a small autogyro, impeccably flown by a retired RAF Wing Commander, Ken Wallis , will delight the crowds. Air shows apart, a Wallis autogyro has been used as a fighter, ' flown ' by 007 himself, in the film You Only Live Twice. The fighting Wallis is known as Little Nellie and is one of a number of specialised autogyros designed and built at Reymerston Hall, Norfolk, where the Wing Commander lives and works.
The development of the Wallis machines from a wartime U-boat observation kite is a fascinating story, yet it forms only part of the unusual Wallis collection of flying machines.

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.
