: A View of the Islands

Escape to Nature
Introduced by Jeffery Boswall
The mild southern climate of the Channel Islands, which brings on the early produce for export and the influx of tourists, also means a fauna and flora different from Britain's. Rare wild orchids, moths like the Jersey Tiger, unusual plovers and warblers, and the coveted ormer - a giant limpet - are among the specialities.
The islands too are a special home for myriads of seabirds, and boast one of the newest gannetries in Europe and the largest stormy petrel assembly in the world.

Appointment systems which get booked up days ahead, and receptionists who try to do the doctor's job for him, make it increasingly difficult for patients to see their gp. They may help the doctor but do such systems frustrate medical care?

: The Philpott File

on The Sporting Life
The latest series of film reports by Trevor Philpott 3: The Golfer
Golf is the Sport of Our Time. Golf courses are bursting at the greens; club membership is a precious possession. From Tokyo to Glasgow everybody wants to play - dustmen and dockers as well as brokers and bankers. The golf course has become the testing-ground where problems of daily life can be worked out of the system, and it is fast becoming a facility as vital to a community as a hospital or a sewage works. People long to retire so that they can give all their time and energy to golf.
The File on The Golfer covers the course from suburban links in Britain to entire communities created in the Arizona desert so that the townspeople can play golf all day, every day, all the year round.

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.
