: Boswall's Wildlife Safari to Mexico

A series of six programmes Across the Cactus Desert
The expedition camps for a month in an extraordinary desert where the world's highest temperature was recorded.
Morning, noon and night the animals respond differently to the problems of high temperatures and scanty water. In the early morning black-tailed hares are active. As the sun gets higher curious lizards appear, like the regal horned toad. At noon there are few creatures to see beside the soaring turkey vulture and grazing pronghom antelopes. At night the desert comes alive: elf owls pursuing beetles, rattle-snakes after kangaroo rats, poor wills catching moths, scorpions and tarantulas waiting by their holes for unwary insects.

: The Golden Land

A trilogy of films about the Jews of the United States presented by Desmond Wilcox.
To Us It Was Paradise
From penniless frightened immigrant to the mother of a millionaire, Sonia Mitchelson has had a remarkable life. But not all immigrants achieved her kind of success-and for all of them America was, and still may be, a threat to their Jewish identity. From New York to Los Angeles, Jews like Tony Curtis, whose father was an impoverished Hungarian tailor, and the 93-year-old Hollywood rabbi who remembers marrying Norma Shearer to Irving Thalberg, tell what being an American Jew means to them.

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.
