: Country File

Running Rings Round Arthur Anne Brown investigates the mystery of crop circles - weird phenomena which appear each summer in Wessex, not to mention in Italy, Japan and Brazil. She meets farmers and scientists with 101 different explanations. At one end of the spectrum the cause is put down to meteorological upheavals, at the other to hoaxers egged on by the press and an excess of real ale. In between are some serious theories and some very baffled investigators.

Particularly by the local schools. Sixth-former

Presbyterian Church to sing their Songs of Praise.
AH my hope on God is founded (Wyddgrug); Soul of my Saviour (Anima Christi); Count your blessings; Pan wyf yn teimlo'n unig lawer awr (Ellers); Sing Hosannah!: The Church's one foundation

: Sunday Premiere: Tumbledown

Winner of the Prix Italia RAI Prize for television drama.
By CHARLES WOOD starring
April 1982: the British task force sails for the South
Atlantic. Among its number is 22-year-old
Robert Lawrence , an officer in the elite regiment of Scots
Guards. On the bleak hills of the Falkland Islands, they fight and win a series of bloody battles. For many of the soldiers it is a violent initiation into active combat, but for Robert, wounded a few hours before the Argentine surrender, the real battle begins back at home.

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.
