First of sixprogrammes taking a new look at British wildlife - through the eyes of the British public. The series uses the latest filming techniques of the BBC Natural History Unit to answer questions. Mike Newman 's passion is peregrine falcons. His nestbox at Willington power station near Derby is home to a pair of birds with two chicks. The
Nature Detectives crew provide an enormous lens to give Mike a very special view of his falcons. Eunice Overend spends a night watching television in the middle of a field. On screen are live, infra-red pictures of the crayfish battling for dominance in her local river, while school caretaker, Bob Phillips , bugged a blue tit nest and witnessed a dramatic raid. And there's a long-term surveillance of Britain's rarest mammals in the Scottish highlands. Producer Miles Barton

Tonight, the man accused of murdering his wife who had to employ his own forensic scientist to prove his innocence; the first prosecution for dog fighting this century; and the landmark case that established that murder could be proved, even though no one had found the body.

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.
