: Sea Trek

The last film in the series of underwater adventures.
The Hawaiian Islands. A whale shark looms out of the blue, dwarfing divers
Martha Holmes and Mike de Gruy. It's a moment of high drama, a breathtaking encounter with the biggest fish in the ocean. But the intrepid pair came to these Pacific islands to track down another heavyweight - the humpback whale. Surrounded by the mysterious sound of singing whales, their hopes rise. Their persistence pays off when a 35-ton mother with a newborn baby lingers quite unconcerned in front of the camera. For the divers it's the highlight of an eventful trip, and a fitting finale to the Sea Trek voyages. Producer Robin Hellier

Last month, several British cities were blighted by rioting, and politicians and church leaders cast around for explanations for the civil unrest. Jane Corbin looks for the causes of inner-city riots and asks what can be done to prevent further unrest; whether the riots represent a failure of the Government's policies in deprived areas; and whether there is an "urban underclass" trapped in a vicious circle of poverty.

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.
