: To Russia with Love

Viewers of That's Life! provided an amazing response to a special appeal on the programme about the run-down Komso Children's Hospital in St Petersburg. In April, more than 200 of them took time off work, paid their own fares and headed for Russia.
Four 27-tonne lorries, packed with vital equipment and supplies, made a separate overland journey under Metropolitan Police escort, braving bandit country where hijacking is common, to rendezvous with the crew of volunteers. Even at the hospital itself, helpers were accosted by the Russian mafia and needed police protection.
Presenter Howard Leader accompanied Ann Mackey , the dynamic personality behind the appeal, and her team for this special follow-up report. "We've saved dozens of children's lives," says Mrs Mackey , who packs her own suitcases with medicines and toys for the children. "The staff are skilled but they don't even have the basics, even painkillers." Producer Tim Knatchbull

: The Human Animal

we work to Bring home the bacon". We
"make a killing" in business. Even our hobbies are
" pursuits" . Desmond Morris continues his personal view of the human species with this examination of our hunting past and how it affects us today.
In The HuntingApe, Morris shows how we were once tree-living fruit pickers who possibly passed through a shore-dwelling stage before eventually evolving into ground-hunting carnivores. This hybrid of lifestyles - part-ape/part-wolf, part-primate/part-carnivore, part-fruit picker/part-hunter - is reflected in our behaviour today, especially where feeding is concerned. He gives as one example the fact thatwe eat meals together (re-creating the primeval sharing of the hunters kill), but snack alone (following the constant solitary feeding of herbivores).
Morris believes that many of our activities can be traced back to our hunting urges - including travelling, competitive sports and even violence, with the victim as a substitute prey. Series producer Mike Beynon

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.

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.
