: The World About Us: People of the Seal: Eskimo Winter

Pelly Bay, in the Canadian Arctic: the temperature -20°C. But this doesn'worry the fur-clad hunter crouching beside the seal's breathing hole who has waited there for 15 hours, right through the polar night, and will remain there till either a seal surfaces - or he freezes slowly to death.
This was the old way with the Netsilik Eskimos-the People of the Seal. Now, they, and their harsh, simple life have been swept away into settlements. But not before a Canadian camera team had shot nearly 100 hours of film, the best of which makes up these programmes reflecting the actions and the outlook of a vanished race.

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.
