: Bucknell's House: 34

Barry Bucknell's weekly do-it-yourself guide to jobs in the home.

The attic room is nearing completion and beginning to look more like home. The walls are sprayed with flecked paint, a successful way of covering deficiencies in wall surfaces, and it is bright and cheerful as well. A glazed partition wall has to be fixed to prevent people falling down the stair well, and a folding door will help to keep in the warmth. Down in the basement bathroom the walls will be decorated with ceramic tiles.

: Look: Animals and Their Young: 2: Protection and Play

Written and produced by Eileen Molony.
Introduced by Peter Scott.

As young animals begin to grow up they become able to feed themselves, but their parents must still protect and educate them. Play becomes increasingly important. It exercises the muscles; it teaches size, shape, speed, and dimension; it is practice for hunting, for fighting, for escape, and for the whole business of living.
Young storks exercise their wings; young lions learn to pounce, young baboons to climb and tumble, and young children to play with bricks and with each other.

: Cubism and After: 3: In the Arena

Written by David Sylvester and Michael Gill.
Some modern artists, such as the Surrealists, have given free rein to fantasy and improvisation in their work. The American action painters have extended the cult of improvisation. They tend to regard the canvas as an arena within which the painter acts in accordance with his particular feelings and needs.

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.
