: The World About Us

Monkeys, Apes and Man Narrator LESLIE NIELSEN
What do we have in common with mountain gorillas and chimpanzees? How does our own society compare with that of a troop of baboons? Can watching rhesus monkeys help solve some of our own family problems?
DESMOND MORRIS and JANE VAN LAWICK-GOODALL are amongst the contributors to this programme, which draws the parallels that exist between our own behaviour and that of other primates. Filmed in Japan, the USA and Africa, it shows recent fascinating discoveries made by scientists working amongst our closest relatives.

: Ballet from Europe

A series of five widely differing ballets.
3: Revolt
BIRGIT CULLBERG 'S latest ballet for Swedish Television uses electronic techniques which seem to project the choreography into the drawings of imaginary prisons by the 18th-century Italian artist Piranesi. She describes the theme as a struggle for freedom. The music is BARTOK'S Music for Strings, Percussion and Celeste.
The series comes from the Royal College of Art, London, where PROFESSOR STUART HOOD and students talk to BIRGIT CULLBERG and MANS REUTERSWARD.

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.
