: Owls - Nighthunters

A faint whisper of broad wings in the gloom, a flash of talons and the squeak of a rodent clamped in its powerful grasp - this is the traditional image of an owl. However, owls are more than just things that go pounce in the night. There are 130-odd species which show an amazing diversity of size, shape and lifestyle. Some owls stand as tall as a golden eagle, others are no bigger than a robin; and they can be found everywhere from the Arctic pack ice to the Arizona desert. Narrated by Judi Dench.

: Crimewatch UK

When Crimewatch first started in 1984 only three programmes were planned. But tonight it celebrates its 100th edition.
Originally the police were sceptical about the idea but, as Superintendant David Hatcher explains, "the programme quickly gained credibility among the police service to a degree no other programme had done."
Producer Liz Mills adds that now the police often come to the programme with their biggest cases: " But the big cases create the most tension. Often vital facts are not given to us until the last minute. Amongthemost famous cases the programme has publicised are the James Bulger murder and the Stephanie Slater kidnap.
In this month's programme
Sue Cook and Nick Ross present some more real cases that they hope the public can help solve. They include a robbery at a jewellers in Harrogate on 28 March, and the murder of a 56-year-old man who was found in East London on 26 February.
If you have information about any of the crimes featured in the programme, call the studio free on 0[number removed]. Director Pieter Morpurgo
(Crimewatch Update is at 11.50pm)

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.
