: Boswall's Wildlife Safari to Mexico

Through the Mangrove Marismas
A water safari down the estuary of the Rio San Cristobal to the Pacific, through the hot, steamy and near-impenetrable jungle in search of strange animals and even stranger plants. Mangrove trees are among the very few kinds of flowering plant that thrive in salt water. They and the tidal swamps where they grow support an immense variety of wildlife: crabs and crocs, hummingbirds and herons, butterflies and boa constrictors, ocelots and olivaceous cormorants.

: She Married a Yank

The Story of the GI Brides
Narrated by Susannah York
Seventy thousand British girls fell in love with and married American GIs during the Second World War. They followed their husbands across the Atlantic in the biggest migration since the Pilgrim Fathers.
This film is the story of five women-Dot, Denise, Marjorie, Peggy and Blanche - each of whom met her GI in Norfolk. The GIs had glamour and money-they were 'oversexed, overpaid and over here'. The girls were in their teens and looking for excitement. What started as a casual pickup deepened into love.
But not all the romances had happy endings. There were GIs who were already married, there were illegitimate babies. The story of the black GIs is the saddest - welcomed by the British, they became the victims of American segregation. None of the girls realised that marrying a GI was going to change her life. For some,
America proved to be the promised land. For others, reality punctured their Hollywood dream. All of them soon found themselves desperately homesick. And in Norfolk, 40 years on, the memory of the Yanks is still kept alive. Maureen longs to find the GI father she's never met. Veronica met her father for the first time when she was 33 -it was an overpowering emotional experience.

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.
