: For the Schools: Living in Water: 3 - Food and Food Chains

by John Carthy.

The plant life of the sea consists largely of microscopic organisms known as diatoms. These form the staple food for the small animals of the plankton-the drifting life of the sea. These small animals are in their turn eaten by larger creatures, and so the food chain goes on.

Producer: F. R. Elwell

: Travellers' Tales: Armand and Michaela Denis On Safari: 6 - They Fly by Twilight

A weekly series of programmes on animal life in Africa.

The story of an expedition into the heart of a mangrove swamp to photograph Flying Foxes. Flying Foxes are large fruit-eating bats. They get their name from their clever pointed faces, brilliant eyes, and ever-alert ears. They live in huge colonies and spend the day-light hours hanging upside-down asleep. At sunset they take off in their thousands-flying to feeding grounds that may be twenty miles away and even on islands across the sea.

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.

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