Last in the series of journeys into the animal world. Making Sense
How do animals make sense of the world? This journey starts inside a swan's egg, joins a wildebeest on migration and flies with a house martin from Africa to England. Discover why a moth flies to a light, and how a pigeon becomes confused by magnetic forces. Why do sharks bite communication cables, hatching turtles visit a hotel, spiders lure moths with sexual chemicals and fireflies flash deadly signals? And why do monarch butterflies, guided by a mysterious sense, congregate in a breathtaking spectacle? Narrator Andrew Sachs

Children in Need
This year looks set to be a record year for charity appeals, not only for the Third World but for poor children in Britain.
Last April, the Government set out to help needy families by changing the Social
Security rules, targetting resources on the worst off, while giving parents more responsibility for their own affairs.
But critics say the reforms have backfired, forcing social workers to appeal to charities and telethons to meet basic needs once provided by the Welfare State.
Against the background of fierce parliamentary debate over the payment of child benefit, Steve Bradshaw analyses the controversy over how best to help
Britain's children in need. Producer HELEN JENKINS Editor TIM GARDAM

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.
