: The World About Us

Cranborne Chase
Narrated by Tom Fleming
Once it was a royal hunting ground - the play-patch of King John. Today much of the forest has been felled, the downland ploughed, yet this new landscape of the Chase may soon be officially declared an area of outstanding beauty. It's the haunt of mad March hares, shy roe deer with their extraordinary running courtship, and rare and mysterious stone curlews.
Eric Ashby , one of the most patient of animal film-makers, has been watching the natural goings-on of this secluded area of southern England, and this film is the end result of two years of painstaking work.

: Seven Wives

Perhaps we don'want to fall out with each other
The seven wives of Moor Allerton Golf Club, Leeds, are emphatic that they meet to play golf together, not to discuss issues of the day. And yet the subjects they choose to talk about - and those they prefer to avoid - express clearly the day-to-day realities of their lives.


Producer: Peter Carr

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.
