: Blue Peter

with Simon Groom, Peter Duncan and Janet Ellis
Gentle Giants!
There's no doubt who stole the show during this year's Summer Expedition - the elephants.
They're Sri Lanka's most useful piece of farm equipment, with great advantages over the tractor. For instance, you don't need import licences, or any spares. An elephant has no use for petrol or oil, he's very unlikely to break down, and he can get to places where no wheeled vehicle can penetrate. But his greatest advantage is his intelligence.
Simon, Peter and Janet discovered bathing Goldie is a pushover, compared with scrubbing their four-ton tuskers. They used coconut husks for loofahs and a soaking wet time was had by all-there's no doubt elephants have a huge sense of humour!
Don't miss today's first report, and catch up with the latest news about the four-legged members of. the Blue Peter team - Goldie, Jack, and George the tortoise.

: Bellamy's New World

A series of eight films exploring America and its botanical history. 2: Real Estates
In the still-smoking crater of Mount St Helens volcano, David Bellamy begins to piece together the story of how this newest bit of the New World is transformed into its most precious resource. His journey takes him through the rapids in the Grand Canyon, on to a giant staircase of time, and up and away in a balloon over California. There are clues in a pygmy forest, some more among the biggest trees in the world, and in a river bed at the top of a mountain; and finally the answer lies in the soil.

Pinochet: The Hollow Cheers Presented by Fred Emery
Ten years ago yesterday General Augusto Pinochet came to power after a military coup in which Marxist President Allende was killed.
Demonstrations this year against Pinochet's regime have been ruthlessly dispersed, but even as he celebrates a decade in power there are clear signals that his time is running out. Philip Tibenham reports from Chile on the growing pressure to depose the General - and on why Britain still supports his military Junta.

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.
