: Survival Team

First of three programmes 'Initially some people say, "Oh, I couldn't do that, I couldn't eat this". We always find them, at the end of the week, in the front of the queue.'
Six ordinary people have signed up for an experiment. They have never met before They have virtually no outdoor experience. But they are going to learn survival techniques from the experts - and put them into practice on a remote offshore island.
In the first programme, the Survival Team arrive in an isolated valley in Devon for a week's training.
There they learn how to shelter from the elements, how to gather food, how to work as a team. Then the rehearsal is over - and they are flown to the island for the real thing.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
