Tommy Cecil , who runs a dive centre off the coast of Northern

In tonight's edition of the programme in which amateur nature enthusiasts film their passionate interest in wildlife, reporter Martha Holmes , who braved blue sharks in Sea Trek, dons her "bubble helmet" and climbs overboard to meet the 20 or so congers that Tommy Cecil has befriended.
" I hadn't seen one before, but I had heard the stories about them - someone I knew had half their face chewed off, so I was a bit apprehensive, she says. "I ended up with four of them wrapped around my legs, while one of them sucked my fingers, which surprised me to say the least!" Cuddling congers, was "a wonderful experience" she insists. "They're incredibly soft to touch."
Also featured is camcorder expert Johnny Kingdom 's footage of red deer in an Exmoor summer, while Chris Packham goes in search of precarious nesting sites in London. With Derek Mooney.

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.
