: Oddie in Paradise

Up to the Giant Car Wash
The first of three programmes with Bill Oddie in Papua New Guinea. In his search for the fabulous birds of paradise and bower-birds Bill struggles up a mountain - drenched in tropical rain. He looks for a twelve-wired bird of paradise, and bower-birds that plant gardens and collect gun cartridges, and even one that dances round a maypole with a golden crown on its head! Can this really be true?
Or is it just another stunt by the Goodies?

: The Visit: Triathlon Man

The second of five dramatic journeys in people's lives with Desmond Wilcox Don Clark , a probation officer, might be dead and should be crippled. His life was saved by micro-surgery. The operation, to remove a spinal tumour, left him with a weakened leg - and a determination to do something for the hospital that had saved his life. He started running marathons for charity and raised E10,000 on his first attempt. Then he took on the biggest challenge of his life - the World Championship Triathlon. To finish, Don - who smokes 30 cigarettes a day and likes to drink beer with his friends - had to swim 2 miles in the sea, cycle 75 miles through mountains and run 20 miles - all non-stop in the fierce Mediterranean heat.
Even professional athletes are daunted by the Triathlon, some have been killed by it. It looked as if it might kill Don Clark - but he was determined to finish and survive.

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.
