The Royal Institution, London Annual Christmas Lectures to Young People by Dr John Napier
3: Fancy having to climb trees in order to eat
The origin of man's ancestors goes back 65 million years, but it was a long time before human beings appeared. If we compress this development into one year, then it was not until 8.15 pm on 31 December that Evolution's door opened on modern Man.
Information about this comes from the structure of the earth's surface and from fossils. Since our earliest ancestors lived in trees, Dr Napier uses his version of Man's Family Tree to demonstrate the characteristics of animals which have made it their home.

The Best 18
The final six holes of this exciting match
Tony Jacklin v Arnold Palmer (GB) (USA)
After playing 12 of the outstanding holes on Britain's classic seaside links, Jacklin is one under Par, Palmer even par. Tonight our film cameras cover the two champions as they play the decisive last six:
The 6th at Royal Birkdale: 440 Yards, par 4. A moment for decision: can you or can't you carry the ridge with the bunker in it? The 17th at Royal Lytham: 463 Yards, par 4. Scene of the most famous shot in golf history, where Bobby Jones won the Open-a Plaque marks the spot
The High-Hole-In at St Andrews: 170 yards, par 3. ' Hardest short hole in the world,' say some ... 'Trouble once begun may not end till the card be torn into ... fragments.' wrote Bernard Darwin.
The 15th at Royal Birkdale: 536 Yards, par 5. Fifteen bunkers and into the wind ... not the longest in Britain, but it often plays so. The 6th at Carnoustie: 565 yards, par 5. ' A hole to dream about,' wrote Patric Dickinson , ' an epic In itself' ... one of Britain's longest championship holes ... ... and the shortest of them all: The ' Postage Stamp' at Troon: 125 yards, par 3 ... but one man took 15 in an Open!

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.

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.
