Bert and the Ben. In 1932
Bert Bissell from Dudley climbed Ben Nevis for the first time. In 1945 he built a Peace Cairn on the summit to commemorate the lives lost in the Second World War. His 100th ascent in 1988 was a remarkable feat - for by then Bert was 86 years old. John Yates reports on Bert's obsession with mountains and his lifetime's work for peace.

: Bellamy Rides Again

The third of six programmes examining the elemental cycles vital to life.
The Nitrogen Cycle.
David Bellamy begins his trip around the nitrogen cycle in the Surrey hospital where he languished as a child suffering from acute kidney failure. He ends it by juggling with dung and urine in a Dutch pig farm. In between he explains how nitrogen is essential to all forms of life, but warns that too much of it can kill. To avoid poisoning the earth, the water and ourselves, the nitrogen cycle - in the state it is in at the moment - must be restored to safe dimensions.

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.
