: The Opposite Sex

Most couples complain about some aspect of their partner's behaviour, but not all of them are prepared to go on television to air their dirty laundry in public. In this pilot for a new entertainment programme, Chris Tarrant invites couples to do just that.
As the programme will be recorded just before transmission, the exact content is not known but it is planned that couples will reveal some of their most intimate secrets and embarrassing moments,
Alan Freeman will present a rundown of the top irritations, there will be a search for Britain's most useless man and a celebrity will talk candidly about their relationships - tonight former Coronation Street star Lynne Perrie airs her views.
With a studio audience comprising of couples only, one can only wonder how many of them will still be talking on the way home.

: The Human Animal

"It sounds like a contradiction, but our playfulness is the most serious thing about us. It is one of the main reasons we became the dominant species on the planet," says Desmond Morris as he comes to the end of the series in which he gives a personal view of the human species.
Entitled Beyond Survival the programme examines what the human animal does once it has sorted out the basic survival needs of food, warmth and shelter. The answer is that we play and Morris shows the many forms this takes - from artistic and creative endeavours to risk-takingexperiences - and demonstrates how aesthetic decisions are being made every day by people across the world.
He concludes by saying that although no single element sets the human species apart from other animals, it is undoubtedly our insatiable playfulness that makes us "superbly human". Producer Graham Booth

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.

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.
