: The Flying Gourmet's Guide

A Guide to the Great British Bird-table
Presented by Chris Packham In this consumer's guide to bird 'restaurants', naturalist and photographer Chris Packham discovers an extraordinary range of bird-tables, from the back garden of Buckingham Palace to the top of a North Sea oil rig. He awards stars for the best menus and the best design - from floating bird-tables to gothic towers - and for the best service - an all-night restaurant! Stunningly
Photographed, it's the birds who are the gourmets, but it's not only the birds that make the final selection. Badgers, Pine martens, red squirrels and deer also come to feast.
And on the way to finding the best table in the kingdom, Chris reveals that without bird-tables many of our back-garden birds would not survive the winter.

A compilation of the slickest storyline and the sickest jokes I have heard in years. (THE LISTENER) A wealth of magnificent wit. adventure, 60s soul music and a cynical eye on 80s Britain.

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.
