: Wildlife on One

Flying Foresters. What has the face of a fox, flies at night, can have a wing-span of over a metre and eats fruit? The answer is the fruit bat, a beautiful mammal that is getting ever rarer. But these are animals we literally cannot afford to lose, because they make millions of dollars for man by pollinating his fruit and trees. And if destroyed rainforests are ever to grow again, it will be fruit bats which plant the seeds. Narrated by David Attenborough. Director Miles Barton Producer Mike Beynon ● STEREO

Nuclear Nightmare
The collapse of the Soviet Union has left thousands of nuclear warheads, vast amounts of plutonium and entire cities full of scientists who know how to make nuclear weapons: what happens to them now? How safe are the warheads? Where is all the plutonium? And could other countries entice the scientists to make their own atomic bombs and spread the threat of nuclear war around the world?
David Dimbleby presents a debate on the "nuclear nightmare" with experts from the USA, Russia and the UK. Editor Mark Thompson

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.
