Kalahari Bigfoot. Narrated by David Attenborough
Down in the burrow dozes a very strange little animal. It looks like a miniature kangaroo, with head like a rabbit, a long tufted tail and impossibly big feet. It's a baby springhare. Outside, in the Kalahari night, are all the hungry predators which lie in wait for little bigfoot - giant eagle owls, black-backed jackals and caracal cats. The predators have sharp beaks, strong claws, powerful teeth: little bigfoot has the most amazing leap. Can he escape? Photography DAVID HOUGHTON Producer DAVID DICKIE

Disarming the Alliance - the Soviet Peace Offensive
Tomorrow NATO celebrates its 40th anniversary. But the Western Alliance, forged in the Cold War, now faces the challenge of the new Soviet peace offensive.
On Wednesday, the Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev arrives in London. It's the first of a series of visits to Western capitals. Opinion polls show him the most popular politician in Europe. Vivian White reports on how his offer of unilateral troop cuts has left NATO in turmoil, as a new generation of West Germans begins to question the position in what the Soviet leader calls our
'common European home.' Producer JENNY CLAYTON Editor TIM GARDAM

: Simon's War

Q.E.D.'s first look at the life of a Falklands soldier. Seven years ago, the Sir Galahad was anchored in Bluff Cove. When the Argentine bombers came screaming in, 50 men died. One of the survivors was Simon Weston but he was terribly injured, with severe burns over 46 per cent of his body. This highly-acclaimed film traces his progress from the day he arrived back in Britain, his battle to come to terms with his scars, and his discovery of a powerful inner resource.
Guardsman Weston was just 20 years old when the Falkland's War enveloped him in all its fury. But he considers himself a lucky man. He returned. Series editor DAVID FILKIN Producer STEPHEN ROSE

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.
