The Grass was Not Always Green
Percy Thrower and Geoff Hamilton recall the early
BBC gardening programmes. From a greenhouse with no glass, erected inside a converted cinema, Percy advised the nation's gardeners, and when he ventured into a real garden he was followed by huge heavy cameras that needed four men to move them. Percy became a friend to everyone with a plant to care for, despite the fact that all his dahlias were dark grey! Production assistant CHRISTINE HARDMAN

A natural history in 13 parts by David Attenborough
10: Themes and VariationsMammals are a very varied group. Bats number over a thousand species, many hunt insects, some sip nectar, drink blood, eat fruit, and even catch fish.
Contrast these sonar-users with the great whales that sing, the star-nosed mole and the giant ant-eater - and the potential variations become dramatically clear.

: Panorama

Cervical Cancer - and Men For more than a hundred years doctors have known that cancer of the cervix has something to do with sex.
Now they are confident it is the result of a sexually transmitted disease, most likely a virus, passed from men to women - and back again.
With the cervical screening programme in something of a shambles there is now an epidemic among younger women of a disease that can kill, unless it is detected before it turns to cancer. And, as Richard Lindley reports, men as well as women are now at risk.
The medical evidence seems to be supporting the opponents of the sexual revolution that started in the 60s. With a vaccine to prevent the disease a decade away, can sex be made safe again without a radical change in the way we conduct our sexual relations?

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.
