Oasis-on-Sea
The seashore turns to desert when the tide goes out and rockpools become oases. Fish, prawns, worms, shrimps and sea anemones have perfected their survival techniques to cope - using everything from trench-digging to chemical warfare. There are fish that can live out of water, or stick to the rocks like limpets.
They all await the new tide - but will they survive that most dangerous of predators - the 9-year-old human with fishing net?

: Suffer the Children

A report from inside South Africa
'You just say you're lucky your children are still alive.' So says the mother of a black 14-year-old boy who had suffered at the hands of the Security Police.
Documentaries from South Africa are rare these days because of the restrictions on reporting. This disturbing film focuses on the children of South Africa, both black and white, growing up under apartheid.
Some of the organised opposition to apartheid is taking place in the schools, so the children have become directly involved in the conflict.
Since the present State of Emergency came into force nearly two years ago, more than 10,000 children have been arrested and detained.
In this film, mothers, lawyers, priests and the children themselves allege that children as young as 11 have been tortured by the Security Police, and have been held for months in detention without charge. Many are said to suffer long-term physical and psychological damage. Narrated by Hugh Quarshie

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.
