: The World About Us

A Sheltered Existence
Narrator David Attenborough
At some time in their lives many mammals, fish, insects, and birds have to build themselves a shelter. Their ingenuity is amazing; for example, one bird builds a two-roomed flat out of reinforced concrete and there's a shrimp which decorates its doorstep with shells. Of course, we humans think we are the master builders but now architects are beginning to realise that there are some things about building that we can learn from the birds and the bees ...

: A Thousand Instruments

' I do like to be beside the seaside ' and Buxtehude's Prelude and Fugue in D major have very little in common except that both can be performed in their appropriate styles on the organ of the Royal Festival Hall.
In this film Simon Preston takes a chronological journey through the organist's repertoire, stopping en route to explain the various tonal devices, e.g., stops, manuals, and pedals, and sets out to show that the Royal Festival Hall organ needs to be a thousand instruments to accommodate the many different kinds of sound that organ music requires.
Simon Preston , who is Organist and Lecturer in Music at Christ Church, Oxford, illustrates his journey with music by Bach, Buxtehude, Handel. Cesar Franck, Couperin, Messiaen and Vierne together with an ear-boggling version of The Ride of the Valkyries.

In New York in the late 1930s, young David Kolowitz works in Mr Foreman 's sewing-machine shop. But what David really wants to do is go on the stage, so when he gets the chance to join actor-manager Mr Marlowe 's seedy theatre company he's even willing to pay Marlowe five dollars a week for the privilege of working for him!

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.
