A special programme for the spring season Courtship
Narrator David Attenborough
We kiss, fondle, and croon; some birds sing, others show off, crabs semaphore, and many mammals just smell good. These are all different methods of impressing a mate.
What are the advantages and disadvantages of each of these love languages? How did they evolve, and can our own courtship be compared with those of other creatures?

: Open Door

A weekly programme made by people with something to say.
Look out the window and what do we see?
All the signs of prosperity
The mill, the factory, the dockside crane
Is it any wonder we're going insane?
That's our song - but we're not putting up with ' Zombyism.' The aim of our programme is to give hope and inspiration-to seek a way out of the wilderness.

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.
