Last in a series of lively documentaries from some of Europe's greatest cities.

Europe's biggest glacier in a satellite-guided jeep, and awakens a geyser with a box full of soap. He engages in conversation with rock star
Bubbi Morthens and Bjork Gudmundsdottir , lead singer of the country's biggest rock export, the Sugarcubes, in the world's most northerly curry house; and talks to film director Hrafn Gunnlaugsson who makes "cod westerns" featuring fantasy re-creations of the Viking settlers. And finally, Schofield meets
Sveinbjorn Beinteinsson , high priest of the pagan religion
Asatru, and Erla, an elf expert, who has mapped the city sites where she believes elves, dwarves and gnomes reside. Director Christopher Morris

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.
