: Salmo the Leaper

The second of five programmes from The World About Us
Prized by gourmet, netsman and angler alike, sea trout and Atlantic salmon return to spawn in the rivers of their birth. The magic of their migration has been revealed by the scientist, but it is through the angler's eyes that we become aware of their extraordinary behaviour.
For Hugh Falkus, writer, naturalist and angler, these fish are two of the most astonishing animals on earth. He tells the story of both fish and fisherman with the knowledge of a lifetime devoted to the sport.
Film cameraman HUGH MAYNARD
Written and produced by HUGH FALKUS BBC Bristol.

: The Late Film: Room at the Top

starring Simone Signoret, Laurence Harvey.
Joe Lampton, newly arrived in a dreary Northern town, determines to 'make good' - via an affair with Susan, the young and impressionable daughter of the town's industrial magnate. In his ruthless struggle for acceptance at the 'top' he destroys the life of Alice Aisgill, an older woman who loves him.
Clayton's version of John Braine's powerful novel is justly considered a landmark in British cinema, for its scathingly realistic portrayal of life and sex in a British town.

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.
