The late Moshe Feldenkrais worked from the outside in, developing an exercise system that he believed could enable the body to realise 'full potential'. Modern nutritional doctors work from the inside out, adjusting diet with the same aim.

: Cries from the Deep

Narrated by Michael Jordan Humpback whales, passing Newfoundland on their annual migration from the Caribbean to the Arctic, are confronted by a criss-cross of enormous drifting fishing nets. Some whales become trapped and either destroy the nets or are enveloped in the mesh and die.
Jacques-Yves Cousteau and the crew of the Calypso head north to witness the plight of the whales and, in the icy waters of the Labrador
Current, they encounter lion's-mane jellyfish, Arctic cod and lobsters, flatfish, the dangerous wolf-fish, noisy sculpin, feather stars and a million guillemots. And they save a baby whale from certain death.
Produced for the National Film Board of Canada and the Cousteau Society Productions by JACQUES- YVES COUSTEAU and JACQUES BOBET

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.
