: The Journey

Playwright Peter Terson and reporter Dennis Skillicorn travel by gypsy wagon along the old pilgrims' route from Winchester to Canterbury.
In this last programme of the series, Peter, Dennis, Marcus the horse and Toby the donkey finally make it to
Canterbury. They start the day at a cider farm and visit the village of Chilham, where they find out about birds of prey. In Canterbury they become lost but a local rag-and-bone man helps them find their way to journey's end ... Canterbury Cathedral.

A six-part series presented by Tony Soper. 5: Deer
Red, roe and fallow are all native species of deer.
Stalking the 'monarch of the glen' in Scotland may be fun, but it is not the best nor the easiest way of seeing a good red stag.
Drive through Richmond Park in London, however, and you'll come close to both red and fallow.
But to see a roe deer you'll need your wits about you. Series producer BRYN BROOKS Producer ERICA GRIFFITHS (R)

A woman is battered in her own home. Trying to escape, she's dragged back by her feet and attacked with an axe. Only a 999 call saves her life.
Horrific, but for Police
Sergeant Colette Paul and Police Constable Annette O'Reilly , it is tragically familiar.
They volunteered to run the first domestic violence unit in a British police station in Tottenham, London, which has since dealt with more than 2,000 local incidents.
For Britain's real life 'Cagney and Lacey' the violence never seems to end.

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.
