: For the Schools: Birds: 4: Bird Flight

by John Barlee.

The main kinds of bird flight are flapping, gliding, and soaring. Unlike most aircraft, birds are able to alter the area and shape of their wings, which allows for great manoeuvrability. There are many examples in the programme of various kinds of flight, some illustrated by special slow-motion photography.

: The Diary of Samuel Pepys: Episode 10

Dramatised for television by A.R. Rawlinson.
with Peter Sallis as Samuel Pepys

The action takes place at Hampton Court, in the City of London, and at Whitehall Palace. It is January 1666. Lord Sandwich and the Fleet have returned from sea with valuable prizes captured from the Dutch. Sandwich and Samuel Pepys have taken their share of the booty without waiting the authority of the Prize Commissioners. But there has been a public outcry and Sandwich has been relieved of his command. Samuel, however, has managed to cover his tracks and remains in favour.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
