: Devon's Underworld

The Quest
The discovery of a cave packed with treasure is everyone's dream. But the reality for Devon cavers was thousands of animal bones in a time capsule revealing the nature of the county's prehistory.
It happened at Buckfastleigh in the 1930s and led to the setting up of Britain's leading Cave Study Centre. Can it happen again? In the second of two programmes Andrew Cooper joins the cavers and scientists working against mud, boulders and rising water in their search for a new cave. Written and directed by ANDREW COOPER

: Songs of Praise

for Easter Day from Taize
Taize in France is a unique monastic community. Each year thousands of young
people from all over Europe are drawn to share the brothers' life of prayer and witness. It was founded in 1944 by Roger Schulz as a Protestant community in a tiny village in Burgundy; its commitment to reconciliation and unity and the style of its worship has had a world-wide appeal.
There are now Catholic and Orthodox brothers, and the spiritual power of Taize is recognised by the Pope and the Archbishop of Canterbury.
Geoffrey Wheeler visits the community and meets the brothers and their young guests. Join them in the Church of Reconciliation for a special Easter Songs of Praise.

: Bird Brain of Britain

Presented by Simon King
Who'd have thought garden birds were so clever? All over the country, they've been solving intelligence tests faster than they can be designed. Pulling out matchsticks, working levers, pecking coloured discs, landing on see-saws, pushing ping-pong balls.
This programme sets out to find the brightest bird of all, but also asks 'is this really intelligence?' In the countryside, birds display just as much cleverness in their daily search for food.
All the same, the bird which solves the toughest test of all does show remarkable ingenuity - possibly something more than simply trial and error.

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.
