: Living Dangerously

The Bustards!
From beak to tip of Its displaying tall, the great bustard measures more than a metre.
But this secretive bird of the steppes and plains illustrates the effect man has had on the look and shape of the landscape.
In the series which explores conservation from the viewpoint of creatures under threat, there is rare film, shot on the Spanish steppes, of the shy bustard performing its extraordinary mating ritual and then settling down to nest. At the same time
EC bureaucrats meet in Brussels to make decisions that affect not only the shrinking habitat of the bustard, but also farmland across Europe, growing the food we buy-and waste.
So Just who are the bustards?

: Crimewatch UK

Just before 6am on 27 September an anonymous call was made to the emergency services. It led police to the Park Tavern in Brentford, west London. There they found the body of publican Trevor Thomas, asphyxiated.
Burglars had bound and gagged him and then robbed the pub of the week's takings. But someone saw that 999 call being made. It was recorded and Crimewatch UK will be playing the tape, asking whether anybody can recognise the voice and the description of the caller.
Tonight there's also a detailed look at the Metropolitan Police's investigation into the rape of a woman in April this year. Detectives are convinced it is linked to an unsolved case from 1991, and reveal for the first time tonight a psychological profile of the attacker.

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.
