: Animal Magic

Introduced by Johnny Morris and Terry Nutkins
Why does your cat rub itself against your legs? Why does it lay back its ears when it's on the prowl? Why does your dog cock its leg or bolt its food when it doesn't have to? The answers are revealed when Johnny and Terry's look at our pets not as domestic companions but as the wild animals they once were. And a stunning new way to photograph birds on the wing. Not from below but from above, with a camera mounted on a model aircraft.

: Great Little Railways: 1: The Gold Rush Line

A series of films exploring narrow-gauge railways around the world.

Yukon - The discovery of gold in the Yukon in 1897 heralded the maddest stampede in history - the Klondike Gold Rush. The White Pass and Yukon railroad was blasted through the mountains to lug the prospectors in and haul the gold out. Gold fever ended with the turn of the century but today the railroad is still there, hauling the modern stampede, the tourists, up some of the toughest gradients in the world.

A four-part serial
2: A power struggle in the Roman Senate has doomed General Silva's plan for peace with the rebel leader, Eleazar Ben Yair. Instead, Silva has been ordered to crush the Jewish resistance within six months. He brings in a siege expert, Rubrius Gallus , to help destroy Masada only to discover that attacking the fortress is the least of his problems: heat, thirst and the psychological warfare employed by the rebels are demoralising and destroying his troops.

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.
