The latest news on our wildlife with Su Ingle and Michael Jordan. Su and Mike are joined by cub reporter Matthew Woods on the trail of the edible dormouse. It looks more like a squirrel than a mouse and it's quite rare. But why should there be lots inside houses in Buckinghamshire? Matthew discovers why.
Su previews a superb new film on golden eagles of the snow-swept Scottish highlands, Mike talks to the cameraman who made that film. And how a Somerset blue tit solved our most complicated bird feeder to date.

Introduced by Jimmy Hill The FA Cup Fifth Round
Blackburn Rovers v Southampton From an entry of 448 clubs, the FA Cup is down to the last 16, but there is still plenty of 'Cup tradition' among the survivors.
Blackburn Rovers, a founder member of the Football League, have won the Cup six times - all those triumphs long ago - but Rovers are currently prominent in the Second Division.
Their opponents Southampton were in the Second Division when they won the cup in 1976. They now stand high in the championship and go to Ewood Park in search of a quarter-final place. Commentator JOHN MOTSON

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.
