: Tree of Thorns

The umbrella-like thorny Acacia tree is home, larder, food, shade and hunting-ground for a wealth of African creatures. The long struggle from seedling to thorn bush and to full maturity over more than a century is a story of striving for space, of coping with threats of drought and fire, and how the interaction of the thorn tree with animals like the elephant, the giraffe and even a tiny beetle is reshaping the African bush.

: The Living Planet

A Portrait of the Earth by DAVID ATTENBOROUGH
A series of 12 programmes 10: Worlds Apart
Swaying palms, brilliant white beaches set in clear blue seas - everyone's idea of a typical island paradise. But islands are isolated worlds, refuges for ancient species, the birthplace of new ones, where life can be gruelling.
On one such place David Atten borough steps back into the past as the world's largest lizard-the komodo dragon-goes hunting. In the Indian Ocean he discovers an island where 150,000 giant tortoises find survival a pressing problem. On Hawaii, the lush tropical forests contain a unique group of birds, the honey-creepers, and among them - caterpillar that catches flies.
Across the Pacific, the strange rat-like kiwi roams the forests of New Zealand where DAVID ATTENBOROUGH encounters another curiosity, a giant flightless parrot.
These and other native islanders are facing an increasing threat -from an animal menagerie introduced by man.

: Verdict Unsafe

A Rough Justice report
After seven years in maximum security prisons, serving a life sentence for murder, Jock Russell was suddenly released last December. The Court of Appeal had quashed his conviction for the murder of a young art student-a crime which was the subject of the first Rough Justice investigation, The Case of the Handful of Hair'. The programme revealed discrepancies in the case and named another man as the murderer.
The television team which helped secure JOCK RUSSELL'S release followed him during his first few weeks of freedom as he sought to fit back into society. Ahead was the prospect of huge compensation for wrongful imprisonment-but, even though his protests of innocence had been vindicated, the stigma of prison remained. Reporter Martin Young

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.
