: Life

...in the animal world
A fortnightly programme introduced by Dr. John Crook.

The Abominable Showman
For many years it has been suggested that a large 'man-ape' exists in the remote Himalayas. How likely is this, and what might the animal look like? Some new ideas are discussed by Dr. Bernard Heuvelmans, University of Brussels, Dr. John Napier, University of London.

Barnacle Geese
According to folk lore, these birds hatched from shell fish. According to Malcolm Ogilvie, of the Wildfowl Trust, who has studied them all over Europe, they are remarkable for other reasons.

: The Dreaming Eye: 3: What are dreams about?

Four programmes exploring the mysterious second life each of us lives in sleep.

So far, research into the mechanics of dreaming has given us only slender clues to the origins of this rich world of fantasy. What can be learned from the dreams themselves?
Introduced and devised by Norman MacKenzie from his book Dreams and Dreaming.

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.
