The World's Newest Island
On 14 November 1963 Surtur, the Fire Giant, erupted out of the North Atlantic; this was the spectacular birth of Surtsey, an island off Iceland's southern coast.
At first nothing lived on its molten landscape, but as it cooled an invasion of life began. Here was a unique opportunity for scientists to observe an island community of animals and plants in creation, and record the processes of colonisation which have been going on ever since life began on earth.

: Sunday Cinema: Pather Panchali

Written and directed by SATYAJIT RAY
In a small village in Bengal, a would-be writer and his wife eke out a bare existence and raise their children, Durga and Apu. An added burden is an aged relative. In the unchanging, centuries-old world of rural India, the children grow up.
Pather Panchali - the first part of a trilogy - was mostly shot on location, with non-professional actors. Satyajit Ray won from them performances of total integrity. The film's most striking quality is its universality - the family would be much the same and just as familiar if they lived in the Home Counties or Lancashire.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
