Sense of Timing
How does time appear to a bird, a shrew or even an elephant? In these unfamiliar time worlds, flies outwit humans in slow motion, birds slice through time to catch their prey and plants reveal strange movements. Animals use the sun and moon to aid their time sense and natural clocks control flower opening, bee activity and the life of an animal that invades the world once every 17 years.

: Heart of the Matter

with Joan Bakewell.
The public are becoming ever more aware of moral issues - the headlines proclaim as much. But where headlines deal in black and white, the issues themselves are rarely so simple.
Heart of the Matter seeks out such issues; Joan Bakewell examines the moral conflict between people with strongly held and frequently opposing views, and considers what their dilemma means for everyone.

The Balancing Act
For people with 'green' sympathies, surely there can be nothing better than getting out into the countryside to recharge your batteries and remind yourself what it's all about? The trouble is, even this causes environmental damage.
Too many enthusiastic feet erode the landscape. And although that damage can be repaired, it is very rarely the people who cause it who have to pay up.

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.
