: Wildlife on One

The Mouse's Tale
Narrated by David Attenborough
In town or country, wherever you live, the chances are that your every move is watched or overheard by dozens of tiny eyes and ears-the eyes and ears of mice. We may not be aware of them, but they surround us in their millions: even in these overcrowded islands there are more of one species-the wood mouse - than there are human beings.
This is the story of a few of these mice, living in and around a cottage in the south of England. The cheeky house mouse is in a real-life Tom and Jerru situation as he keeps one jump ahead of cat and trap. The dor- , mouse faces hazards of a different sort: first, the all-night ordeal of emerging from hibernation, and then the touching moment when it struggles to give birth to its first baby.

: Angela Rippon Meets

The Image-Makers
Nothing and no one is beyond the scope of the image-makers. Angela tries to sort out the reality from the illusion when she looks at how the fashion designers persuade us to wear the latest look and the ad men seduce us into buying their product through the packaging.
She finds out that Bradford is the ' Venice of the North '; visits vicars on a television course; and talks to Mrs Thatcher about the difference between her real self and the way she's presented by the media. Whether you're selling religion, toothpaste or politics, you've got to get the image right. Angela finds out how.

: Ian Botham

Richie Benaud looks back at the 1981 Cornhill Test Series between England and Australia with Ian Botham , the man who was always in the headlines, the man who began as an out-of-form England captain and who finished a national hero, as he swung the series from near defeat to total victory with individual performances that had the cricketing world applauding in stunned admiration.
The repercussions of the series were felt on both sides of the world, as almost never before. The stock exchange almost came to a standstill during the extraordinary Headingley Test. In Australia one sports programme went on the air with funereal music, its presenter - former Australian captain Ian Chappell no less - wearing a black armband!

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.
