: The Living Planet

A Portrait of the Earth by DAVID ATTENBOROUGH
A series of 12 programmes 7: The Sky Above
High above the earth's surface David Attenborough floats weightless showing that without gravity the world would be a chaotic place. Seeds, spiders, sky-diving frogs, gliding squirrels, insects, birds and bats have all overcome the force of gravity to fly through the air. In South Georgia David is dwarfed by those masters of flight, wandering albatrosses. In Kenya he takes a vulture's-eye view of the African plains from a balloon basket. Some birds use gravity: the bearded vulture drops bones to splinter them into pieces it can swallow and the peregrine falcon dives at high speed to knock its prey out of the sky.
Again in a balloon, swathed in warm clothes and an oxygen mask, David ascends to four miles above the earth's surface to look for tiny animals and to see how weather is generated. Seen from space huge cloud patterns sweep across the globe ... and a harmless cloud grows into a thunderstorm producing a tornado - the most powerful weather phenomenon on earth.

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.
