: Animal Magic in Hong Kong

Introduced by Johnny Morris and Terry Nutkins
Johnny and Terry are on the second stage of their operation to rescue two dolphins from Japan and bring them half way round the world back to England. The dolphins have now reached Hong Kong where they're resting up for a few days. It's an opportunity to explore, and to see the beautiful pet cage birds which everybody in Hong Kong seems to own. And a chance to see one of the most spectacular marinelands in the world, Ocean Park, where Johnny comes face to face with a moray eel, and Terry rides on the back of a killer whale!

: Q.E.D.

The War of Words Down Under with Anthony Clare BUGA UP is the provocative name of an organisation in Australia that is devoted to defacing adverts, organising street happenings and infuriating the tobacco companies. They're not anti-smoker, just anti-cigarette sponsorship and ads. If we oppose drug pushing, they argue, then we should oppose cigarette promotion too.
Australia is producing a movement of angry men and women - led by doctors who are prepared to break the law.
Their fight is winning much public and even Government support. Their aim is to ban all cigarette promotion. Tonight Q.E.D. describes the maverick campaign.

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.
