: Times Remembered by Proud Mums

3: Patrick Moore 's Mother, Gertrude
They say that behind every successful man there's a woman. The woman behind the success of astronomer Patrick Moore-whose The Sky at Night series is the longest running one-man show on television - is his mother, 86-year-old Gertrude.
When he was six she gave him a book called The Story of the Solar System. He's been looking up at the sky ever since - and making a good living out of it.
Tonight she talks to JOHN PITMAN about how it all began.

How Much Do You Smell?
Some days before returning home from battle Napoleon wrote to Josephine: ' Don'wash, I'm coming.'
Insects and other lower animals have an elaborate language of scent signals giving smell instructions for anything from the finding of a mate to where to go for food. Now scientists are finding evidence for such a system in higher animals and even in man. But how much does man still use this kind of smell signal?
How much evidence is there that smell is still a sex attractant in man as well as the animals?

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.
