The last in the present series with Cliff Michelmore
John Carter and Anne Gregg
The brochure promises a safari with a difference - something extra special. What could be more 'special' than spotting wild animals on a game drive through Kenya's National Parks? Tom Savage found out when he trekked on foot from a tented camp and rode in a hot-air balloon over the Masai plains.
Galicia has been described as 'the real Spain' - where the Spanish people themselves go for their holidays. With coastal scenery reminiscent of the Scandinavian fjords, it's a region rich in history. JOHN CARTER drove along the north coast - along the pilgrims' route to Santiago.

: Streetwise

The sixth of eight programmes presented by Sarah Kennedy
Mugging is street language for theft with assault. The way this crime is reported often suggests that there's nothing you can do either to prevent it or to ward off an attack if it happens. But is this true? Several people, none of them physically strong, tell of how their quick-wittedness thwarted their attackers. And, if the worst comes to the worst, self-defence teacher Judith Lowe shows Sarah a simple technique which could help you escape from a mugger.

: Songs of Praise

from the Isle of Thanet
Life on the Isle of Thanet on Kent s eastern shore has always been closely tied to the moods of the English Channel. Bill Eades ran away to sea when he was only 12 years old, and tonight he tells Geoffrey Wheeler about the hardships the Ramsgate fishing boats had to face in Edwardian times.
He also visits the Benedictine Monastery where Sister Concordia, one of Britain's foremost religious sculptors, has her studio, and meets a Methodist minister who regularly takes to the air in pursuit of his rather unusual hobbies.
Their choice of hymns are sung in the Parish Church of the Most Holy Trinity, Broadstairs.
Jesu, lover of my soul (Aberystwyth); Eternal Father, strong to save (Melita); Amazing grace; 0 brother man (Londonderry Air); When lamps are lighted in the town (St Botolph); Jesus is Lord!; Lord of all hopefulness (Slane); Ah, holy Jesus (Herzliebster Jesu)

: Heart of the Matter

with David Jessel
On Friday the English Rugby Football Union will make a final decision on its proposed tour of South Africa in May. A decision to go may have an impact on this summer's Olympics, and will almost certainly affect England's participation in the 1986 Commonwealth Games in Edinburgh. But when military and trade deals go through on the nod, is sport just an easy target for the pressure groups?
As the RFU makes up its mind, DAVID JESSEL talks to the players and the decision-makers about their dilemmas and responsibilities as sportsmen, ambassadors, politicians and human beings.

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.
