A Higher Form of Killing
On 22 April 1915, the Germans launched the first gas attack against the allies at Ypres. It was, said its inventor, a higher form of killing'. By 1918 it had claimed the lives of 100,000 men. Sixty years later the world has developed nerve gases many thousand times more powerful. The Russians and the Americans have enormous stockpiles - and the British Government is currently considering whether we too should go back into chemical warfare.
Tonight Jeremy Paxman investigates the continued development of one of the most feared of all weapons.

: Monday Film: The Rollicking Adventures of Eliza Fraser

starring
Susannah York , Trevor Howard
Loosely based on a true 19th-century story, this lively movie follows the adventures of Eliza and her husband as they leave for England from the penal colony of Sydney. Shipwrecked, they survive with some of the crew, but mutiny and murder ensue. Eventually the Frasers escape but are caught by a tribe of hostile Aborigines. Eliza is rescued and, back in England, makes her fortune on stage -recounting her amorous and other intrigues.

: Bellamy's Europe

The fifth of ten films presenting a personal view of the European countryside.
Rain in Spain ...
... stays mainly on the plain in Andalusia, but on the Cabo de Gata hurricanes hardly ever happen-until David Bellamy arrives! Protected by a large umbrella he explores the desert bad-lands of south-east Spain. In contrast the Cota-Donana, to the west, is a wonderland of wet marismas supporting many beautiful plants and animals.

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.
