: The World About Us: The Discoverers

The 400th edition of The World About Us
Compiled by David Attenborough
In 400 programmes the producers, film teams and explorers of The World About Us have brought to the screen unique, frequently spectacular film of places, people, animals and events. No polar region, no jungle, no desert, no ocean, no mountain has seemed too remote or too inaccessible. No tribe, no animal, no bird, no exotic plant has escaped their attention - or so it seems.
Wild Dogs of Africa, The People of the Seal, The Bay of Whales, Jacques Cousteau's The Night of the Squid, The Romance of Indian Railways, were all programmes - and journeys - to remember.
A compilation which recalls moments of achievement and risk; excitement and danger; discovery and despair.

: Festival 40: What Do You Think of It So Far?

The last in a series of programmes to mark 40 years of BBCtv
David Frost introduces a programme examining the impact of television on our lives, with Sir Huw Wheldon, former Managing Director of BBC Television, Lord Briggs, the historian of British broadcasting, and John Whale of The Sunday Times and from America Fred W. Friendly and Barbara Walters.
With them in the studio, a specially invited group of television personalities, producers, writers and viewers.
It has been calculated that between the ages of five and 65 an average person in this country will spend nearly seven whole years sitting in front of a television set. What effect does all this viewing have on us? Has it changed the way we live and think? Has it had an influence on the way we vote? Has it had an impact on our children?

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
