: The Living Isles

A ten-part natural history of Britain and Ireland Presented by Julian Pettifer
3: Beneath the Greenwood Woodland is the natural wilderness of the British Isles; left to itself, the landscape would be covered by trees - almost to the top of every mountain. Most of the native wildlife that once flourished in this ancient wildwood, lives on, in the fragments of woodland left today.
High in the topmost branches, the buzzard surveys its domain. From the leafy canopy, with its exuberance of birdsong, down to the forest floor, carpeted with familiar flowers and home to badgers, the greenwood celebrates a natural history that is very special to our islands. Photography

from Southwark Cathedral Christians from country villages, commuter towns and the inner-city have gathered in Southwark Cathedral to celebrate the 80th anniversary of their diocese. The links between London Bridge and Gatwick in fact stretch as far as Bangladesh. Roger Royle meets John Ackland , who is both a British Airways purser and an ordained priest serving in Kent. His local church school supports the orphans of Bangladesh through John's regular journeys to Dacca.
Roger visits the suburbs and the inner-city to learn of the life of the diocese and hears from Yvonne Goodman about her first impressions of the Church of England.

: Everyman

An Appointment with the Astrologer
A woman's husband has been missing for over a year; an actor faces a law suit which could ruin his career; a maharajah wants to purchase a new car.
In times of crisis these people have one thing in common: they turn to their astrologer. Following them through the bustling alleyways of Benares in India, Everyman explores their problems and their search for a solution. Today in the West astrology as a major influence is virtually dead, but in India most people still consult an astrologer before taking vital decisions. By looking at the part astrology still plays there, one can catch a glimpse of the crucial role it has played in civilisations throughout the world for thousands of years. Series producer DANIEL WOLF

With the help of fellow victims to their own fatal charms - John Schneider from The Dukes of Hazzard, Bernadette Peters , Dynasty's Linda Evans and a mystery guest star - George Burns sets out to discover what it is that makes a sex symbol so seductively sexy.

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.
