: The Great Bears of Alaska

The Alaskan winter is long, dark and bitterly cold, and so the great bears sensibly choose to sleep the months away. But when they awake, they must find the food not only to fully restore themselves but to put on the pounds for the next big sleep.
"There is no greater spectacle on earth," says producer Roger Jones , "than to watch hungry bears packing into six months what other creatures do in 12." After the initial gorge there is time for mating and for play. As the bears head back to their dens some of the females are pregnant, others have given birth to the season's cubs. Soon they must prepare for another six months of abstinence.

: Roughnecks

Written by ex-Tomorrow's World presenter Kieran Prendiville, this new six-part drama is about the men and women of the oil rig Osprey Explorer. Focusing on their lives both on and off-shore, it took over two years of intensive research, involving people from all levels of the oil industry.
In tonight's first episode the crew is flown across the North Sea to the hazardous world of an exploration rig. But they are distressed to find that a colleague has died suddenly of a massive heart attack under mysterious circumstances, and a strike is threatened when a wallet goes missing.

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.
