: Life in the Freezer

It is now winter in Antarctica, with the temperature dropping to minus 70 degrees and winds building up to 100 mph. These are the worst conditions on earth.
Weddell seals are surrounded by hundreds of miles of frozen sea, and work to keep open holes in the ice in order to feed and shelter. Their young must take to the water when just a week old and get on with the business of survival. Beneath the ice, jellyfish drift over the starfish on the sea bed, while within the ice itself, fish generate their own version of anti-freeze to survive.
In this desperate weather all animals but one tend to move north in their attempt to escape the most bitter conditions. The exception is the emperor penguin. In the cold and darkness, illuminated only by the eerie display of the Southern Lights, the emperors huddle together, each incubating a single egg as the storms rage around them.
"It was to collect an emperor penguin's egg" says David Attenborough , "that three men from Scott's expedition set out in mid-winter on what has become known as the worst journey in the world."

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.
