: Truck Drivin' Man

He has been called 'the last American hero', the man who drives the big rigs across every State in the Union. With his country-style music and even his own radio stations, the long-haul trucker has become the mechanised cowboy of the 80s, riding the highways - the free and travelling man. But this story of three truckers and their journey from Portland in Oregon to Phoenix, Arizona, is also about the reality as well as the myths. Lead driver, Karl Weber , puts it this way 'The small independent operator hasn't only got to fight the government bureaucratic machine and the big trucking companies, but also his own union - the Teamsters. And to keep in business, he's just got to keep on trucking.'

: The Living Planet

A Portrait of the Earth by DAVID ATTENBOROUGH
A series of 12 programmes 8: Sweet Fresh Water
From the Andes, David Atten borough follows one particular river to the sea. It is the Amazon. The life in and around it changes as it flows on its 4,000-mile journey from cold torrents to a vast warm delta. And there are similar changes in other rivers of the world, producing such variety as torrent ducks, mayflies, piranha, giant otters, fishing owls and the Marsh Arabs of Iraq whose whole community floats on a delta.
As that special substance, fresh water, continuously erodes mountains and carries the products to the sea, the landscape is altered. The world's great waterfalls have been at work for millions of years and the results are spectacular from Iguazu in Brazil to Angel Falls in Venezuela - the highest 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.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
