: Pets Win Prizes

A game show in which hens compete to see which one can keep from clucking the longest? And in which goldfish play croquet and hamsters take part in a Grand Prix? It sounds unbelievable but this new series promises just that.
In each programme's five rounds animals of the same species strive to win prizes for their owners in games such as That's My Stick Insect and Tortoise Speed Marathon. The owner of the overall winner gets the chance to play for a holiday by answering questions, not surprisingly, on animals. It tests the imagination but in future shows cows, hamsters, snails and ferrets all get to take part.
The series is hosted by Danny Baker and animal lovers will be relieved to know that Really Wild Roadshow's Terry Nutkins will be on hand to make sure the creatures are not mistreated.

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.
