Last in the series of documentaries uncovering human stories from the world of science, medicine and technology. Gallop to Freedom. David Attenborough tells the inspiring story of 12 horses, raised in European zoos and chosen to take part in a brave and uncertain return to the wild in central France. Belinda,
Ellen and 1 -year-old Malek are Przewalski's horses, whose ancestors roamed Europe in prehistoric times and were immortalised in the Lascaux cave paintings. Today the species is extinct in the wild and these three animals have grown up in the confines of Marwell Zoo in Hampshire. This beautiful and moving film records their release into the wild, an epic journey of danger and discovery that will change the horses'lives and could affect the future of their species.

Introduced by Desmond Lynam. European Football. Highlights of the European Cup Winners' Cup final, staged at Wembley Stadium this evening.
Commentary by Barry Davies.
Waddle and Wright. On
Saturday Arsenal and Sheffield Wednesday meet in the FA Cup final at Wembley. It promises to be a highly entertaining encounter following Arsenal's close 2-1 win over the Yorkshire club in the Coca-Cola
Cup final last month.
Two of the teams' major stars, Chris Waddle and Ian Wright , had by their own standards quiet performances in that match, but this Saturday gives them another chance to display their enterprising skills. Tony Gubba and Clive Tyldesley meet the men who are potential match winners.
The Racefor the Title. Barry Davies looks back at the Premier League season which started amid criticism and confusion and finished with one of the most dramatic championship run-ins for many years.
Plus the chance to enter this year's Goal of the Season competition.

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.
