: Nelson's Column

In his last collaboration with writer Paul
John Gordon Sinclair played an aspiring thespian in An Actor's Life for Me. Now Archer and Sinclair turn their attentions to another profession: journalism.
Nelson's Column is set around the offices of the Herald, a provincial newspaper where Gavin Nelson struggles every week to find an exciting local story to spice up his column inches. But of far more immediate interest to Gavin is his colleague Clare (played by Sophie Thompson , Emma's sister), a cub reporter with little interest in his romantic intentions.
In the first episode, Too Close for Comfort, Gavin considers how best to woo Clare. Will flowers and soft music make her fall for him? Or burglars and superglue?

: Wildlife on One

White Birds of Winter
To farmers they are pests, to hunters they are quarry, but to many native Americans snow geese are the subject of myth and legend. For the Arctic peoples - the Koyukon and Inuit - they bring the spring, and for the Sioux, on the great plains of the Dakotas, they represent the cleansing power of the north wind.
This film, narrated by David Attenborough , follows the flocks, and in particular one pair, of geese on their 5,000km migration from the southern states of the USA to their breedinggrounds in the Arctic.
The timing has to be perfect and the chicks must hatch and fledge in six weeks before the cold winter returns and the new family makes its return journey.
Using modern techniques cameras fly alongside the geese and on the ground mix with massive flocks. The haunting music of the Navajo flute, played by native American composer Douglas Spotted Eagle, enhances the atmosphere. ProducerSteve Nicholls

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.
