: Wildlife on One: Bird Man of Afikim

Israeli cameraman, Moshe Alpert risks his life nearly every working day. He is a CBS news cameraman. His pictures showing Palestinians being savagely beaten by Israeli troops shook the world, yet the same camera that records violence and bloodshed in the occupied territories also focuses on the natural beauty of the Israeli countryside. As the tanks roll past and the clatter of gunfire dies away, Moshe turns his lens on his real passion - clouds of migrating white pelicans which float unchallenged over barbed wire and battlefield.

: Hot Air and Fantasy: The Adventures of Terry Gilliam

In the week of the London premiere of Terry Gilliam's The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, this documentary sheds light on the making of the biggest movie shot in Europe for over 25 years. The director reveals how he almost despaired of finishing his film, faced by mounting problems ranging from dogs with liver complaints to huge overspending, and the stars explain how they coped with the amazing special effects, from bizarre make-up to riding in a balloon of silken underwear.
With the participation of Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, John Neville, Charles McKeown and Oliver Reed. Narrated by David Castell

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
