: Birdwatch

Live from the River Exe.
Spend a day with Tony Soper and Roger Lovegrove observing waders and wildfowl on the Exe estuary in south Devon, at the height of the migration season.
This, the first of four broadcasts, is timed for low water when vast stretches of mud are exposed, revealing food for thousands of birds. Oystercatchers and curlews probe the mussel beds; turnstones seek sand-hoppers from beneath pebbles; herons and cormorants fish in the diminished river.
(Birdwatch continues at 1.45 pm)

: Songs of Praise

from Aberdeen
Strategically placed between two rivers (the Dee and the Don) the Granite City has, since the discovery of oil, justifiably earned the title of Europe's offshore oil capital. But long before the advent of oil education was (and still is) the main source of employment in the city. Ian Gall visits the University and meets Sister Clare Ahern, who has spent ten years living with tribal Aborigines in Australia, and then takes a trip around the harbour with one of the pilots, Alistair Esson. The people of Aberdeen gather in St Mary's Roman Catholic Cathedral to sing their Songs of Praise.
Praise to the holiest in the height (Billing); My song is love unknown (Love unknown); Soul of my Saviour; Come, let us join our friends above (St Matthew); I watch the sunrise; When I survey the wondrous cross (Rockingham);
Holy, holy. holy (Nicaea); Christ is King of earth and heaven (Laus Deo)

: Omnibus

with Humphrey Burton New Art
Since the end of the 1970s art has undergone dramatic changes and upheavals. Out is the abstract, the minimal and the conceptual, the art of bricks and blank canvases, now overshadowed by an art which is often figurative and apparently expressive - in other words, a 'new art'. In the week that the Tate
Gallery's Patrons of New Art award the first Turner
Prize, Omnibus presents an international survey of contemporary painting and sculpture. In the words of Alan Bowness , Director of the Tate, it includes 'some of the most interesting and exciting art of the 20th century'. Among the many artists featured are the Turner Prize candidates
Richard Deacon , Gilbert & George, Howard Hodgkin Richard Long and Malcolm Morley.

Daddy King
The Rev Martin Luther King Sr, father of the famous civil rights campaigner, is still a leader of his people although he is now in his 80s. Born into extreme poverty he became a famous preacher and a courageous fighter against racial injustice long before his son became prominent. In the space of six years he was afflicted by three brutal deaths in his immediate family. This film is the testament of a man whose remarkable experiences span the century.

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.
