: Animal Magic

with Johnny Morris and TERRY NUTKINS and) special guest Toyah Willcox.
Toyah, the pop star, meets Toyah the lion-tailed macaque in today's programme. Toyah Willcox was so interested to hear that the baby monkey who appears every week on Animal Magic had been named after her that she accepted an invitation from Johnny and Terry to come to the studio to meet her namesake. Toyah will also have a chance to see another guest, Stromboli the sword-swallower. What's he got to do with animals? Johnny will be asking Stromboli to swallow an endoscope -a device which Terry will also be using in the studio to peep into the world of an ants' nest and a mouse's burrow.

: David Bowie in Baal

by BERTOLT BRECHT translated by JOHN WILLETT adapted for television by JOHN WILLETT and ALAN CLARKE
Brecht's first play, set in pre-world War I Germany, depicts scenes from the life of an amoral poet-singer ruthlessly devoted to nis own talent. He loves nature and the universe passionately, but is coldly indifferent to all ordinary human feeling, with devastating results.

Unearthly Powers
A growing number of people in Britain are coming to believe in the power of the supernatural, their convictions strengthened by the extraordinary experience of being taken over, as they claim, by the Holy Spirit. They speak in unknown tongues, they experience ecstatic states, they enter trance, and they fall unconscious.
Unlike most claims of supernatural activity, these phenomena have a long, respectable Christian history, and can be witnessed - and filmed - by non-believers.
This film reports on the return of the supernatural to British religion, and on the latest scientific experiments designed to reproduce states of religious trance.

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.
