: Life in the Freezer

Autumn arrives in I Antarctica, with hints of the returning ice. As nuge seas batter the penguins struggling ashore to feed their young on the islands at the edge of the continent, the breeding season is over.
The thousands of this year's penguins must take their chances In the icy water, where hungry leopard seals are waiting. Fur seal pups practise their swimming and young wandering albatrosses rehearse their elaborate courtship dance.
Later, the temperature moves ever downwards towards minus
70, and the sea freezes, driving animals and birds north before the advancing ice. Except, that is, for the emperor penguin, making its way south into the teeth of the worsening weather. Producer AlastairFothergill

: Crimewatch UK

Why would anyone want to kill family man John Reynolds? He lived in Rushden, Northamptonshire, and was gunned down early in the morning on Monday 18 October as he walked his dog in a quiet country lane. His death is still a mystery, but perhaps you hold the vital clue to his killing. Police urgently need to trace the motorcyclist seen at the scene moments after the murder. Maybe you've seen the distinctive motorcycle before, or can recognise the man who rode it?
In Shropshire, two security guards were attacked and subjected to a terrifying ordeal as they tried to make a delivery on 21 September. Police need your help to identify four men they believe were involved in the raid. Locals recall seeing strangers in the town about a month before the attack, and Crimewatch has impressions of their faces and descriptions of their getaway cars in the hope you might remember something. If you have information about any of the crimes featured in the programme, call the studio free on [number removed]. Presented by Nick Ross and Sue Cook.

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.
