The other megaclues from the Earthsearch were charts and top. What will the third one be? Whizz solves it when she tells Voice that microcomputer is the solution to the last part. Bug is very lively today and exercises with the Fit Fixers and Fast Flyers. However, he still can't work out how to
'whizz'! Whizz 'whizzes' back just in time for the Earthsearch. The clue is 'this is June', but 'are there any dates missing?'

: Omnibus

A South Bank Saga....
A spring morning in Britain's National Theatre complex: on the stage of the Olivier, Ian McKellen rehearses a dangerous sword fight for
Coriolanus. Next door in the Lyttelton, Athol Fugard watches a final run-through of his play Road to Mecca. In Rehearsal Room One
Anthony Hopkins begins a read-through with the company of Pravda. And in the small Cottesloe Theatre, a day-long performance of the successful Mysteries has already begun - God creates the world, from the top of a fork-lift truck. But the Cottesloe is under threat of 'going dark' - the dreaded phrase that means the closure of a theatre, job losses and actors out of work. SIR PETER HALL has announced the closure in response to what he believes is inadequate public subsidy. In the light of this latest crisis, Omnibus explores the past, present and still uncertain future of our National Theatre. Film cameraman JOHN ELSE Film editors MICHAEL FLYNN BOBPORTWAY

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
