Introduced by Johnny Morris
Everyone knows the difference between a stoat and a weasel, or do they? Isn't one bigger than the other? Or maybe they are different colours? Johnny, once and for all, tells you how to tell these two native British carnivores apart; and then turns musician when he performs the violin solo for ' Pop goes the weasel'. Terry directs a skilful operation to transport two dolphins from one side of the country to the other.

: Omnibus

When the Dancing Had to Stop
Eighteen months ago Lynn Sey mour was at the height of her career, acclaimed by many as the greatest dramatic dancer of her generation. Then a foot injury and a serious operation forced her to leave the stage. This Omnibus film records a crucial six months in her life as she fought to overcome her injuries and return to dancing. She talks with honesty and directness about her major roles and about the pressures of being a ballet star. Her dazzling career is reviewed in filmed extracts and discussed by Dame Ninette de Valois, Rudolf Nureyev and Clement Crisp. And finally Lynn talks about the startling public announcement about her career that she made only a fortnight ago.

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.
