: The World About Us: Walk Into the Parlour

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

Spiders are not very popular, but their amazing courtship and feeding behaviour make fascinating viewing when filmed by those masters of macrophotography,
Gerald Thompson and Eric Skinner.
Commentary by Alan Gibson.
from the South and West

This film, first shown on BBC-1 on April 23, 1966, can now be seen in colour. Gerald Thompson and Eric Skinner, whose award-winning film The Life of the Alder Wood-wasp was a masterpiece of close-up photography, here turn their cameras and remarkable techniques on the spider, which under their lenses and bright lights becomes a fearsome creature with fascinating habits.

: The Inward Eye

Gordon Stent went blind six years ago. He was then running his own business-ironically he was a lighting consultant. He retired to Bournemouth and started to make a new life.
This film centres on this remarkable man who refused to allow his blindness to stop him doing what he wanted-and what he wanted to do was to become the first blind artist. He has developed a technique for drawing representational pictures and in tonight's film he demonstrates this technique and talks about his life since he went blind.

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.
