: The World About Us: Twilight of the Tiger

The drastic decline in the number of wild tigers at large in the Indian sub-continent reflects the general disappearance of a great deal of wildlife there.
Philip Wayre has travelled widely in India and Bhutan to film some of the remaining creatures of the vanishing forests and to observe some of the valiant efforts being made to conserve them in the face of a desperate struggle for living space.

: Music on 2: Bhakti

A ballet in three episodes by Maurice Bejart
In traditional Hinduism, Bhakti means devotional love. In this film Maurice Béjart has taken three of the most popular gods and created a romantic episode round each one, based on Hindu mythology.
Performed to traditional Indian music, spectacular dancing is contrasted with sequences shot in Brussels, Benares and Madras, and Indian mythology contrasted with the brash Western world of supermarkets, skyscrapers and mass communication.

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.
