A 'J' from Yesterday
Built in the 1930s the 'J' class yachts achieved a pinnacle of grace and beauty that has never been surpassed. Only ten were ever constructed - by the millionaires of the day - and most were broken up at the start of the war. Terry Brabent was determined that the 'J' class yacht should not pass into history. Bob Fisher charts a four-year struggle leading to the rebirth of the unique Velsheda.

: The Old Man of Hoy

Live coverage of an attempt by four climbers on the most famous chunk of rock in Britain. It's 17 years since Hoy was televised but the risks haven't diminished. Murray Hamilton and Pete Whillance will tackle the overhanging south-east edge, but without the protection of the bolts and pitons used on the first ascent. The rock itself, Torridon sandstone, has a tendency to crumble like a digestive biscuit. 'Falling off could mean our limited protection is ripped away like press-studs', says Whillance.
Also on the south face is the legendary Joe Brown , climbing with his daughter Zoe, six months old at the time of the first broadcast. Her climbing till now has been on small crags. At the thought of climbing 450 feet, with maximum exposure, she is, she says, 'absolutely terrified'.

Living in the far north west of Scotland and being faced with a journey of 180 miles to get vegetables, hotelier Robert Irving decided to grow his own. Using plastic tunnel houses he has become totally self-sufficient, producing high quality food for his customers and selling excess produce in the local area. Aided by expert John Molyneux he has developed several hydroponic units producing early crops of strawberries, french beans, peas and salads. Jim Sutherland ,
Horticultural Adviser from the North of Scotland College of Agriculture, sees the venture as an ideal model for small growers or any farmer wishing to increase farm-gate sales. Reporter GEOFF HAMILTON

A Forty Minutes documentary
A flight of fancy about Britain's most underrated bird from some members of its human fan club: Naomi Lewis , the pigeons' Florence Nightingale who tends the stricken birds in parks and streets of London; Mr and Mrs Clapham who cohabit with 32 pigeons in their Tooting semi; Jed Jackson , the blind fancier whose 'Genista' won the pigeon Grand National in 1981; Geoffrey Stevens of Sheffield who trains his white fantails to take wing to the music of Messager in the ballet Les deux pigeons.
There is a man who eats them, another who dyes them and a journalist who panics whenever he sees them (he has never been to Trafalgar Square). Executive producer Roger Mills Producer Andy Stevenson

Christians from both sides of the border join them in Holy Trinity Parish Church to sing their songs of praise.
Raise the ancient banners (St Gertrude); Saviour again to thy dear name (Ellers); 0 Jesus I have promised (Wolvercote); Lord of the dance; Tell out my soul (Woodlands); I bind unto myself today (St Patrick's Breastplate); He who would valiant be (Monks Gate); Praise to the Lord (Praxis Pietatis)

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
