: The Kon-Tiki Man

Thor Heyerdahl: the Story of a Great Adventurer
Was it pure chance that all the great civilizations around the Indian Ocean blossomed at roughly the same time, or was there some link connecting them, perhaps even a common source?
To cast some light on the mystery, Thor Heyerdahl decided to build the largest and most sophisticated reed ship the world had seen for thousands of years. The time was 1977. The place - the banks of the Tigris river. Narrated by Christopher Railing.

: Inside Story

Most of us shudder when we see a rat. Nearly all of us call for help. Ratcatchers are the men who come to answer our calls and soothe us.
Those calls increased by 20 per cent last year.
City rats live in our sewers. Here they multiply in a nice warm environment and we throw away an ever increasing amount of waste which sustains them and their young. From time to time they break out of the sewers bringing disease and destroying property. Some even appear in our toilet bowls.
Inside Story follows
Hackney's 'ratcatchers' as they cheerfully seek the little animals we all hate. Producers Charles Stewart and Malcolm Hirst

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.
