: The Animals Roadshow

with Desmond Morris and Sarah Kennedy
Where do cats have no tails, and sheep have four horns? And where is the only horse-drawn tramway in the world? Desmond and Sarah cross the sea to the Isle of Man to discover some of the island's distinctive animal heritage and take a ride with its unique 'Trammers'. Desmond finds out that the island's rare tail-less cats come in rumpy and stumpy, as well as risers. And in the shadow of 12th-century
Peel Castle he meets the original castle dogs of Europe. Sarah visits Government
House, home of the island's
Lieutenant Governor and his four-horned sheep. Far from the crowds, she meets pop star Rick Wakeman at home with family and rabbits; and takes a stroll on the beach with racing driver Nigel Mansell and his labradors. And what has Wincey Willis got in store in her menagerie? Research

: Songs of Praise

from Moscow
"Russia always was a Christian country. It is, and always will be, a Christian country. You can't change a state in 70 years."
That's the claim of a monk of the Russian Orthodox Church, which this week celebrates its 1,000th anniversary. Tonight's special comes from the Church of the Resurrection in the heart of Moscow. It is the music and the beauty of the worship that has kept the church alive.
Ian Gall meets members of the congregation, including Georgy Karlovitch Wagner , who tells of ten years' imprisonment in a Siberian labour camp for attempting to stop the destruction of churches under Stalin. The Liturgy is celebrated by Metropolitan Pitirim, one of the most senior bishops of the Russian Church, who affirms that the church is now experiencing a remarkable revival. Sound MIKE SAVAGE

: Everyman: Holy Russia: One Thousand Years

"We knew not whether we were in heaven or on earth."
One thousand years ago, this testimony to the splendour of the Greek Church in Constantinople persuaded the ruler of medieval Russia to choose Orthodox
Christianity as the state religion. This choice had profound consequences for the development of Russia, helping to isolate it from the West and contributing to a sense of mystery which is still felt today.
The history of the Russian state is inextricably linked with the Orthodox Church.
The Church has consistently safeguarded national consciousness, despite centuries of invasions, internal conflict and oppression.
This week the Russian Orthodox Church celebrates its millennium. How has it been able to survive when the state has taken on different forms, some alien to its doctrines, and what effect has this had on the Church in Russia?

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.
