: Almost Human: Give a Dog a Bone?

How to live with animals and look after them.
Introduced by Di Fisher with Michael Frostick and Frank Manolson.

Instead of bones, biscuits, and scraps from the table, most of Britain's ten million dogs and cats now feed out of a tin. Housewives spend more than a million pounds a week on some twenty different brands of canned pet food, and the manufacturers are trying to sell the idea of feeding domestic animals on tinned food and nothing else. What effect does this kind of diet have on the family dog and cat?

: The Expert: The Long Hate

by William Emms
Starring Marius Goring
with Ann Morrish
and Victor Winding, Sally Nesbitt
Guest stars, Helen Lindsay, Peter Vaughan

Mr. Toller is a man of immense personal ability. A self-made man who has no time for the weak or the idle. A man without humour. A man indeed who creates hatred.
Jo Hardy is treating Toller for some inexplicable illness. The patient makes it no easier for Jo by his overbearing arrogance but she patiently tries to diagnose what is causing his illness, which becomes more and more serious.

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.
