: More Ways Than One

The Mistake of a Lifetime
Peter Patterson came across the ideas of Rudolf Steiner by mistake - and they changed his life. ' You can read books on nature, on history or on spiritual things, but to see that there is somebody who can bring the thing together, and make sense of it, was a revelation.' Today he lives and works in a new school in Bristol, and his life is still changing.

: The World About Us

Tender Trap
An extraordinarily dramatic and much acclaimed film - about four plants! It sounds impossible but it's not, for the plants are all carnivorous.
Venus fly-traps closing on their insect prey like vegetable versions of a rat trap ...
Sundews with sticky arms baited with sugary bait enfolding their meals in octopus fashion ...
Bladderworts feeding on underwater creatures caught with a fast-triggered blunder trap ... Finally pitcher plants enticing their insect meals to the top of a slide down which they glissade into a flask of insect-rich soup .. , The purpose of all this: to allow these plants to live where other plants can't ... an evolutionary trick for survival in places where essential nitrogen compounds are hard to come by. Narrated and directed by HUGH FALKUS
Produced by OXFORD SCIENTIFIC FILMS Series editors ANTHONY ISAACS and CHRISTOPHER PARSONS (Bristol)

On the road and hanging by a song

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.
