: The World About Us

Krov and Ann Menuhin (below) in The Mayan Connection They went to Central America just to film the wildlife - colourful birds, agile monkeys and fish schooling off the world's second largest barrier reef. But most of all they wanted to swim underwater with those rare mammals the manatees - just as they had done with the whales in Argentina.
At the end of four months the Menuhins had achieved this-and much more; for as they travelled in Belize and Guatemala they became absorbed in Mayan history-and realised that almost everything they filmed had some significance long ago in Mayan times.

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.
