: War at Sea

The Battle of the Atlantic In March 1943, 39 ships in four convoys were sunk by German U-boats. Losses on that scale could not be tolerated; at that time
Admiral Carl Doenitz , the Commander-in-Chief of the U-boats, came as close as he ever would to winning the Battle of the Atlantic. Had he succeeded then Britain could have been forced out of the war. That he did not do so was due in large measure to the parallel battle, fought by scientists during the war years, which was to turn almost certain defeat into victory. Presented by William WooUard

Safari parks the world over create an illusion of Africa. In Japan people as well as animals are put on display. Jeremy Cherfas goes on a safari to Kenya by foot and by balloon. He discovers some strange practices out in 'the wild' - waterholes that are topped up, electric fences and salt licks - which raise the question as to whether the national parks are no more than big zoos!

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.
