Six programmes with Tony Soper 5: Partnerships
Nature is not always red in tooth and claw, full of strife and competition. Some animals have got together to become messmates. Delicate sea anemones and sponges are the professional partners of hermit crabs. Reef fishes cannot keep healthy without the help of special laundrymen. Down on the farm, even cows need a bellyfull of friendly microbes, because without them they would starve.
TONY SOPER travels from Plymouth Hoe to Africa and the Seychelles in search of pals and partners.

: The Other Half

with John Pitman
Six love stories about six very different couples.
1: Claire and Desmond Agony aunt Claire Rayner has been married for 26 years. Desmond is a failed actor who wants to be a painter-a personality in his own right. Currently he manages Claire's affairs. He's a gentle, affable man. Shy and retiring. Almost the exact opposite of his bouncing, ebullient wife. But sometimes the roles are reversed. When he gets his first exhibition at London's Barbican Centre, the confident Claire becomes a bag of nerves. Friends say they have 'the perfect marriage'. They are not so sure. 'I think perhaps we are too close; that we rely on each other too much,' says Claire. 'And we're always afraid that something will come along to spoil it.'

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.
