: The World About Us

The Petersfinger Cuckoos Narrated by JOHN GOODERS
Today is the first day of spring and soon large numbers of bird migrants from Africa will be flying in for the breeding season. Among them will be the cuckoos that lay their eggs in the nests of other birds.
This is the story of the cuckoos at Petersfinger Lakes near Salisbury. In over 1,000 hours of patient observation, Ted and Terence Chan nell have not only filmed the secrets of the cuckoos' lives-and their unwitting reed warbler fosterparents-but also a great variety of other wildlife which spends the summer there.
All the events in the film are typical of those that will take place from now on in countless places that, like Petersfinger, are no more than a dot on the map.

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.
