: The World About Us: Seabird Summer

A series of films from all over the world about our astonishing planet and the creatures that live on it.

Just off the Pembrokeshire coast lie two small islands-Skomer and Skokholm. The inhabitants number many thousands, of which a few are human. The rest include seals, the unique Skomer voles, and above all great colonies of seabirds like guillemots, kittiwakes, and comical-looking puffins. These bird cities are formed when the ocean wanderers of the winter fly in to become the cliff nesters of the summer.
Written and narrated by Tony Soper.
Adapted from the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds film

: 4472 - Flying Scotsman

- An epitaph for the age of steam
"It's the smell, the familiar smell of smoke and the beat of the engine; the feeling you're being pulled not by a mechanical box on wheels but by something pulsing and alive..."
On May 1, 1968, the famous locomotive 4472 - Flying Scotsman - pulled out of King's Cross exactly forty years from the day of its first non-stop run between London and Edinburgh. On board the train were three hundred railway enthusiasts. This film is an impression of their journey.

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.

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.
