: Supersense

A journey into the animal world in six parts. Sixth Sense.
How do birds find their way? How does an electric fish perceive its surroundings? What's it like to see images formed from body heat? Supersense uses a new filming style to travel into a world filled with senses as remarkable as any human sixth sense. It flies with geese as they navigate by the sun and stars, swims with a dolphin through a magnetic landscape, discovers a mammal that senses body electricity and a fish that creates a forcefield. It finds animal meteorologists, animals that predict earthquakes, and even animals sensitive to the slightest breeze or the movement of water.

Council Housing: The Last Frontier
Council estates are the Conservatives' next political battlefield.
Once, council housing, subsidised and secure, symbolised the Welfare State. But the Government has cut back council housing and introduced the right to buy; and now the Tories plan to sell off whole estates to new style 'social landlords'. If the Tories replace council-house culture by enterprise culture, who will lose and who will gain? Vivian White reports.

Sixth in a series of ten programmes about computers in society with Fred Harris.

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.
