: Wildlife on One: They Came from the Sea

The B-movie title is appropriate: this is natural history that borders on science fiction.
Thirty-five million years ago (recent history in geological terms), crabs emerged from the sea to invade the land, and in that short time have adapted in the strangest of ways.
Land crabs can be found in the deserts of Australia, far from any water, imitating their neighbours the marsupials by keeping their young in specially developed brood pouches. In Florida, crabs have evolved such highly organised social groups that their mass annual migration to the spawning grounds closes local roads.
And they're getting bigger. The giant robber crab, terror of Christmas Island, can sever a human finger with its giant claws. For the invading crabs, this is just the beginning.

: Grushko

St Petersburg has embraced many of the characteristics of western capitalism and liberty, among them organised crime, police corruption and extortion. In this three-part drama, Yevgeni Grushko is Head of the Mafia Investigations Division of the local police force, facing new challenges as the internicine gang rivalries escalate towards war on the streets.
Grushko has to fight not just the mafiosi themselves but the councillors, politicians and businessmen who benefit from their activities. Money from crime is becoming a common currency.
Brian Cox , acclaimed as a National Theatre King Lear and RSC Titus Andronicus on the one hand, as the cinema's original Hannibal Lecter on the other, plays Grushko. His most recent television role was as Picasso in BBC2's Yo Picasso.
In this first episode, a restaurant is fire-bombed, a TV journalist and a member of a local mafia are murdered, and a valuable statuette is stolen.
What is the connection?

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.
