: The World About Us: A Home for the Wanderer

This week's programme in the series of films from all over the world about our astonishing planet and the creatures that live on it features a tiny island in the sub-Antarctic, the home of the world's largest sea-birds - wandering albatrosses. They share Bird Island with vast numbers of fur, leopard, and elephant seals; with penguins and a wide variety of other birds.
For 18 months three scientists worked through storm, sunshine, and blizzard, studying the wandering albatrosses and filming this unique record of the wildlife of Bird Island.

: A Year in the Life for The Honourable Member June 1968-June 1969

An MP is someone prepared to open bazaars, kiss sticky babies, challenge wrongs that can never be righted. This is the profession more often quoted - he will claim misquoted - than any other. He is the man all blame in a crisis yet whom in times of plenty no one thanks. What than prompts a man to become an MP? Tonight's film looks at one such man from a by-election in June 1968, and then through his first year in Parliament. The tiredness, the frustrations, the worrying over other's worries, the rewards: how he reacts is shown in this film.



Produced and directed by: Paul Watson

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.
