: Life in the Freezer

The first hints of spring spread to Antarctica in September. On the beaches the bull elephant seals begin to fight over the females, and one of them almost runs over David Attenborough in the second of his programmes covering a year in the life of the continent.
Albatrosses arrive on the nesting cliffs of South Georgia, and macaroni penguins colonise the rocky slopes. Gentoo penguins climb the near-vertical snow faces to their nests, but as Attenborough says: "The journey down proves that penguins were not designed for ski-ing!"
The crab-eater seal, the world's second most numerous large mammal after man, lives and breeds on the ice floes around Antarctica, Adelie penguins march over the frozen ocean to their breedinggrounds and snow petrels travel to the heart of the ice-cap to nest.
Here, they raise their families at a temperature of -30 Celsius. Producer Alastair Fothergil

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
