: The Living Planet

A Portrait of the Earth Last in a series of 12 programmes by David Attenborough New Worlds
For 10,000 years mankind has been changing the face of the Earth and the animals and plants that live upon it. When the early farmers reached England about 6,000 years ago, they cleared the forests for their farms. Sinre then, most of the British countryside and much of its wildlife has been changed. David Attenborough looks at the damage being caused far away from centres of population - to the oceans, to the atmosphere and tropical rainforests.

: Songs of Praise

from Beccles Quay, Suffolk Holiday-makers and boating folk gather by the river with choirs and congregations from Suffolk and Norfolk to sing their Songs of Praise with the Wrentham Band and the East Norfolk Youth Jazz Orchestra.
Pam Rhodes discovers how the spiritual needs of holiday-makers are cared for, and goes messing about on the river with some waterbound missionaries. She takes a 'Swallows and Amazons' journey to the remotest part of the Broads to find a young man who lives in a resurrected 'Ark' and the last of the offshore fishermen tell tales of 50 years at sea, in all weathers, in the same tiny boat.
Shall we gather at the river? Our
God reigns: I need thee every hour; Seek ye first; God is love: let heav'n adore him (Hyfrydol); By the rivers of Babylon; Abide with me; To God be the glory

: Everyman: Silent Witness

In 1942 the International Committee of the Red Cross made a dramatic decision: it chose to maintain its philosophy of confidentiality and remain silent about Nazi plans to exterminate the Jews. Why? Everyman has obtained exclusive access to new research about the controversy. Is confidentiality really the necessary price of access to the victims of war? And would the Red Cross do the same today? lain Guest talks to delegates who have faced similar heart-rending decisions in more recent conficts in El Salvador and the Gulf, and finds them facing impossible choices.

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.
