: The World About Us

Up the Amazon Narrated by FRANK WINDSOR
There is probably no more romantic word in the geography books than ' Amazon '. The world's greatest river pours out as much water in one day as the Thames delivers in a year.
The Amazon jungle covers an area ten times the size of France. Hollywood sees it as a sinister region full of slinking Indians, 40ft snakes and snapping alligators; writers revel in the ' Green Hell'. Scientists see it as the world's oxygen factory and the Brazilians as a frontier to be conquered.
Now the Amazon is being opened up to tourism-package holiday travellers are penetrating its mysteries at first hand and discovering a green paradise.

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.
