: The World About Us

... or, for this week only, The World Beneath Us
Narrated by David Attenborough
A worm's eye view of life underground. Using special camera techniques, we travel down a mole tunnel to see how a mole excavates and how it catches worms; we see the tiny animal forms that live in the watery film around soil particles; we see species so numerous that there can be up to 20 million of them under each square metre.
It was in 1777 that Gilbert White drew attention to the actions of earthworms in improving soil fertility. Two centuries later, scientists are still unravelling the mysteries - and discovering the importance - of earthworms and the animal community that makes up The Underground Movement
Made in association with WGBH Boston and Polytel International, Hamburg Series editors ANTHONY ISAACS and CHRISTOPHER PARSONS (Bristol)

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.
