: Cracking the Egg

A Wildlife Anthology
Birds have been laying eggs for over 100 million years and man's fascination for them is as old as human culture itself.
The tradition of an egg at Easter pre-dates Christianity and can be traced back to the pagan spring' festivals.
Jeffery Boswall is the 'egg spert' for this programme which deals with many aspects of the natural egg. Besides their shape, size and colour he looks at how the egg and then the chick are formed; the perils and rewards of incubation with the hungry 'egg eaters' ever ready for a meal.
Symbol of life's renewal, the natural egg has been rifled, revered, blown, blessed, collected, cooked, dyed and decorated.
Folklore and faith have combined to produce the traditional games and customs of Easter; the artificial egg, be it magnificent Faberge or tasty chocolate, is a relative newcomer to the scene.

: Everyman

Holy Father
In seven weeks' time Pope John Paul II will arrive in Great Britain, on the first visit to these islands by a reigning Pontiff.
It is a great symbolic event, but it is not just a symbol, an institution, that is coming: it is also a man.
KAROL wojTYLA has, in the three-and-a-half years of his Papacy, become probably the most famous man on the planet. Few Popes, if any, have made such a strong public impact; few have given rise to such conflicting emotions. What sort of man is he? And where is he taking the Roman Catholic Church? The answers are rooted in his life, so in this film
Peter France (above) presents a complete film record of Karol Wajtyla's 62 years-from Wadowice to the Vatican. He travels to Rome and Poland to trace the connection between the life and the Papacy. And he talks to some of Pope John Paul II's leading supporters and critics.

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.
