: Favourite Walks

A Bird Walk with Bill Oddie
Fair Isle is the setting for the second programme. Islands are wonderful places to watch birds, and Fair Isle attracts many rare migrants - and 'birders' like Bill Oddie , who shows that this is not a recreation for the impatient. You can have a long wait before you spot a 'crippler', but meanwhile you can enjoy the walk.

: ScreenStory: Peter the Great

A four-part Emmy Award-winning production telling the story of Russia's greatest Tsar - a man of passion and cruelty dedicated to changing his country in the most turbulent of times. Starring
1: 1682. Following the death of Tsar Fedor HI, power in Russia is delicately balanced. His two sons, Peter and Ivan, are too young to rule and the Kremlin is a place of intrigue, with influence being sought by church and nobility, and with the key being held by the Russian militia - the Streltsy. Saved by a peasant from being murdered through the plotting of his ambitious half-sister Sophia, Peter grows up in dark and violent times to become a young man of restless curiosity who holds an uncompromising vision of Russia's future ...

: Hemingway

On the Ropes
With Marc Smith as the voice of Hemingway.
Third of a four-part series on the life and works of Ernest Hemingway.
By the late 1930s books such as The Sun Also Rises and A Farewell to Arms had made Hemingway one of the most talked-about writers of his generation. With the publication of For Whom the Bell Tolls his sales and the world's interest in him accelerated at an almost frightening pace.
This programme examines his rise to star status as big-game hunter, war correspondent and friend of the famous. But the Hemingway of the Spanish
Civil War and the glamorous safaris in East Africa was a man fatally confused about his public image and his private mission as a writer. Hemingway grows further and further away from the innocence and hopefulness of the Paris years.

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.
