A look at Britain from the air The Highlands and Islands of Scotland by WILLIAM CARROCHER
Even though this film was made 14 years ago, the coming of oil in the meantime has not made that much difference to the far north west -it is still the emptiest and most beautiful corner of Britain.

with Su Ingle and Michael Jordan Swallows, Swifts and House Martins Beautiful, fast-flying spring visitors, but it's so difficult to tell them apart. Or is it? Su and Mike come up with some sure-fire methods of telling at a glance.
Su climbs deep inside a cave after a furry, intelligent and social flying mammal - the bat, and finds one of Britain's rarest and biggest species, the greater horseshoe bat. Mike looks at one of our commonest mammals - the grey squirrel. Is it really a pest?
Also some of the children who've qualified for the Kestrel Award.

The feature film starring Kenneth Connor, Windsor Davies, Patrick Mower, Judy Geeson

More concerned with coming to grips with each other than with the enemy, the Carry On team defy every effort to bring order to the ranks of their mixed male and female anti-aircraft unit. As a last resort, the powers that be send the well-meaning but bumbling Captain Melly to try to knock some shape into the unruly mob, and thwart their determination to Make Love, Not War.

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.
