: The Living Isles

A ten-part natural history of Britain and Ireland
Presented by Julian Pettifer 4: Island Waters
The seas surrounding the British Isles are their greatest untouched wilderness. They have a natural history as fascinating as the land.
Beneath the surface lies a mysterious world that teems with wildlife.
From the cold waters of Shetland and the Fame Islands, home to great colonies of puffins and guillemots that fly underwater in pursuit of shoaling fish, to the warm blue Atlantic that bathes our south-western shores, this underwater voyage of exploration travels into the colourful world of corals and sea-slugs and the secret domain of the octopus.

Crieff is a small country town straddling the broad valley of the River Earn in Perthshire. It is a popular holiday centre, as Roger Royle discovers when he meets the managing director of the Crieff Hydro. The beauty of the landscape is reflected in the hymn 'We praise thee, Lord', written by a local musician, Ron Gonnella , for the primary school children. Roger joins the congregation in St Michael's Parish Church 0 for a thousand tongues to sing (Lyngham); We praise thee. Lord (Stratheam): 'Tis winter now (0

The Tao of Physics
Modem physics may lead us to the Buddha or to the Bomb.
(FRITJOF CAPRA)
Ever since Galileo fell foul of the Roman Catholic Church, science and faith have appeared to be in conflict. But some commentators now argue that, the further physics progresses, the nearer it approaches a mystical view of the universe, and of man's place in it.
Fritjof Capra is a physicist and writer, living in California. In this film he criticises the conventional belief that the universe can be viewed simply as a vast machine, and argues that modern physics itself can lead us to the profoundest spiritual insights - insights crucial to man's survival.

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.
