Nightlife
Narrated by David Attenborough
The sun goes down, the lights go out, and then, for human beings, it's the dead of night. But night is far from dead. It's the time when a whole other world of animals feed, fight, mate and live out their lives.
Through the eyes and ears of the animals of darkness, this programme unfolds the story of one imaginary night in the English countryside.

Whose Law Is It Anyway? The High Court is closed today. For the first time in history, judges have downed wigs to debate what they suspect may be a threat to justice itself. On trial are the Government's plans to reform the legal profession: are they the end of costly restrictive practices and a closed shop, or the abolition of an independent legal profession?
But whose law is it anyway? The consumers', who pay the bills, or the lawyers' themselves?
Joshua Rozenberg investigates the lawyers and cross-examines their arguments.

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.
